Product Description

The traditional American song, Down to the River to Pray, has been arranged for String Orchestra by Joseph I. Corporon.

This arrangement allows each instrument section to shine as it moves through the keys of F Major, G Major, and Ab Major. It starts with a violin solo accompanied by pizzicato strings. Then the melody gets passed around to the other sections as the tonal center continues to rise. Violin 1, Violin 2, and Violincello have divisi sections with solo parts for each instrument.

The very energetic arrangement gradually gives way to a more instrospective repetition of the Refrain as Violins and Violas end in their high register.
