The Composition & Performance Notes
Deep River: An American Spirituals Collage weaves together three beloved spirituals: Deep River, Balm in Gilead, and My Lord What a Morning. The arrangement is intentionally flexible for use with a variety of performing forces, and it also invites spatial creativity in the location of choirs and/or soloist throughout a venue. It was written for the combined Campus Singers choirs of the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
Four suggested possibilities for ensemble variations are as follows:
1) SATB Choir Group I, Women’s Chorus Group II, Men’s Choir Group III
2) SATB Choir Group I, Children’s Choir Group II, Soloist Group III
3) SATB Choir Group I, Solo Duet Group II, Children’s Choir Group III
4) SATB Choir Group I, Solo Duet Group II, Soloist Group III
