for SATB unaccompanied Number 3 of Three Spirituals. In this haunting and plaintive setting of the classic spiritual, Warren creatively evokes a stark tone of loneliness and despair with descending chromatic inner voices in the opening. What follows is a rich, reflective harmonic texture filled with chromatic surprises. The traditional melody is passed between voices and gently supported in the vocal accompaniment.
