A powerful symbol of the American civil rights movement and made popular by the Freedom Riders in 1961, Rev. Robert Wesby, reimagined the lyrics of the hymn “Woke Up this Mornin’”replacing the name “Jesus” with “freedom” in the refrain. Audiences will thrill to the sound of tenor-bass choirs singing this wonderfully rich spiritual arrangement by Austin Hunt. With solo opportunities, the piano accompaniment is laden with gospel riffs adding a richly diverse layer to this TBB setting, sure to be a hit at any concert!
