Follow the Drinking Gourd
African American Folk Song (composer), David Hill (arranger)
- Tenor 1
- Tenor 2
Follow the Drinking Gourd is the perfect spiritual for the burgeoning tenor-bass choir as it provides opportunities to explore colors in the sound while singing in a minor key. With a mysterious piano accompaniment, the repetitions of the word "follow" portrays the haunting call of those who have gone before. Not to be over-looked!
