This fresh, declamatory version of the African American traditional spiritual is perfect in every way: clean, balanced in form, and fleeting along with sweeping, logical voice leading that gives this 4-part version with solo voice the right stylistic color and feel.
The repeated “born, born in Bethlehem” response to the solo voice and SSA wails will easily be sung by heart and put this favorite right in your choir’s memory bank!
