True Believer (Four Spirituals) image
"Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel", "Sometimes I feel like a motherless child", "Deep river" and "In that great getting-up morning" arranged for unaccompanied SATB choir.
The number of verses in a particular spiritual seems to vary from edition to edition, as it probably also did in early performances. These arrangements certainly omit some known verses. One more verse of "Didn’t my Lord deliver Daniel" is often sung and a further fourteen (!) of "In that great getting-up morning". The latter, in its complete present-day form, is a stirring telling of the Judgement Day Story in the Book of Revelations.
Although it is intended that these four spirituals be sung as a sequence, any of them may be sung as an individual item, perhaps with a few minor alterations at the start or finish.
