  1. The Needham Congregational Church was nice enough to let me record the choir singing this. There were only 9 singers that day, but they did a great job anyway! A piece with a gospel/spiritual/tent revival/Sacred Harp/shape note singing feel. I had great fun with the three-part women's split towards the end. To be sung at a slow walking tempo, with a strong accent on the downbeat. I marked an obnoxious number of breaths to be sure that everyone is breathing in time, to help keep the syncopations and the triplet/duplet structure together. Liberties can absolutely be taken with the soprano part, if performed by a small group with a strong soloist. It's a mighty rocky road. Traveling a mighty rocky road. "It's a mighty rocky road," she said, "it goes on forever and ever." (Sweet water divine. Sweet Savior of mine. Oh, my Jesus will find me in time. Sweet water divine.) I hear singing down the road. Can't you hear them singing down the road? "It's a mighty rocky road," she said, "it goes on forever and ever." (Sweet water, etc) All the saints been down the road, just before me, walkin' down the road. "See them walking hand in hand," she said, "though the way goes on forever."
