Quick Overview

David Eddleman has crafted an excellent new arrangement of this timeless classic, adding lively descant ornaments in the soprano part and vocally percussive lines in the bass part. Recorded by a diverse group including Elvis Presley, Louis Armstrong and Van Morrison, "Down by the Riverside" is a spiritual with a long history. Certainly known in Civil War times, it is thought the "ain't goin' to study war no more" lyrics were added at that time. A colorful addition to any concert. Duration: 2:13
