Description:

This Negro spiritual that says “I've come too far and I can't turn back” is scored for soprano and baritone solos with solid choral harmonies. Choirs love to sing spirituals, and this one will be no exception.

Assurance is the theme of this spiritual, expertly arranged for SATB choir with soloists. This piece is easy to learn, and a vigorous, accented performance will convey a sense of determination to the listener. The unison phrases in the final verse, followed by soprano divisi, are an exciting finish to this fine arrangement.
