Quick Overview

This lazy swing setting in 12/8 time is a history lesson in song for two-part choirs. With finger snaps and hushed dynamics (Shhhh!) to dramatize the importance of quiet stealth by escaping slaves, this is a fun way to learn the history of the Underground Railroad. The performance notes explain in detail the historical significance of this African-American slave song.
