Brass Quintet

Down in the River to Pray
traditional spiritual
arr. Zack Smith
Price: $10.00

Transposed parts can be ordered.


A very interesting interpretation of the old hymn made popular once again by Allison Krauss in "Oh Brother Where Art Thou".  The arrangement starts in a very traditional fashion with trumpet on melody.  Horn takes over, and eventually, every instrument gets to play some part of the hymn.  On the third verse, Zack takes it into a very thick, jazz harmony -- but the arrangement finishes on a peaceful note (and hopefully the audience will applaud as they forgive you for stretching their ears).

Listen to a synthesized sound clip.
