I'm gonna lay down my heavy load (in the By an By) is the theme of this spiritual, wonderfully captured in this arrangement. The syncopated melody utilizes a pentatonic scale and rhythms which feature a swing feel. Partnered with the well-known gospel jewel When the Morning Comes, choirs of all abilities will sound phenomenal when singing this concert-closing tune. Offered a cappella or with piano, whichever meets the needs of the ensemble. Also available for Two-part voices (BL848).
