Peter, Go Ring Dem Bells

for baritone solo, and a cappella SATB choir

This joyous Spiritual proclaims a fervent belief in “Freedom’s Song”, and its infectious, jaunty, rhythm- coupled with a simple, yet unforgettable melody make this a perennial favorite in the canon of slave songs. Absolutely appropriate in the context of a religious service, or festival choir performance in a secular setting.

    This setting is ideally suited for a good chamber choir with a high soprano soloist.
