River of Hope

(Based on “Down to the River to Pray”)

Series: MusicWorks Grade 2 Score & Parts Composer: Michael Sweeney

Level: 2.5

The centerpiece of this work for band is the memorable Appalachian folk hymn “Down to the River to Pray,” which was featured in the 2000 film O Brother, Where Art Thou? Interspersed with this melody is a faster original theme that provides a complementary yet contrasting tone to the emotional statements of the folk hymn. Richly scored and flowingly beautiful. Dur: 4:25 (Grade 2-1/2)
