Deep River
SATB choir & piano

Composer: Weidner, Raymond


Publication Type: Choral Octavo

Min:  8
This creative setting of the familiar African-American spiritual Deep River places a traditional, major melody within a harmonically minor context. This approach allows two contrasting ideas to be juxtaposed: the oppressiveness of slavery (depicted by the ponderous piano accompaniment) and the hope of deliverance (inherent in the melody itself). The result of this conflict directs our thoughts to a personal longing for eternal peace.
