This plantation song collected during the Civil War highlights the polyphony that call and response and echoing patterns produce. The melody moves from voice to voice to give each section an opportunity to alternate between singing the melody and responding to it. Contrasts in dynamics and vocal timbre lifts the melody off the page whith the ostinati keep the rhythmic pulse moving. Easily suited to a children's chorus or a women's chorus. (2:30)

"You guys are so awesome about being attentive to your customers. I have a LOT of band kids that float in and out of this house...I'm going to spread the word about your company to them. They're always needing something to upgrade, etc. I'm very, very pleased with your service and will definitely "be back"."

"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!"
