Product Description

Go Down Moses is an Afro-American Spiritual Song. This version is arranged as a duet for one Clarinet and one Alto Clarinet.

Go Down Moses was first published in 1853 after Afro-American Contraband regiments sang it during the American Civil War. In the recording age Go Down Moses was made famous by Paul Robeson and Louis Armstrong. William Faulkner named a novel after the song and there is a memorable performance in the 1941 film, Sullivans Travels.

Go Down Moses is arranged in a key and range best suited to the instruments. There are four verses, one slow and stately, the other three in a gospel swing style with constant variations. Click the link above to listen to a full Youtube performance of the Clarinet version of this duet.
