This is a simple yet stunning arrangement of the captivating folk ballad popularized by the movie, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Jay Althouse has re-introduced its original text, quietly underscored by a haunting, Copland-esque keyboard accompaniment. After the ballad is sung in canon, it segues quite naturally into the traditional spiritual, "Jesus Walked That Lonesome Valley." Easy to prepare, yet unforgettable for the entire church year, especially All Saints', Ash Wednesday, Eastertide and Lent, as well as school concerts and festivals. Available in 2 voicings.

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"
