(Grade 3) Based on Shall We Gather at the River
Shall We Gather at the River is a traditional Christian hymn, written by American pastor and gospel music composer Robert Lowry (1826-1899), and it has become a favorite song of Southern camp meetings, water baptismal services and funerals. This particular arrangement was a gift from Professor Chambers (Texas Lutheran University) to the family of Professor Linda Clark (1943-2009). The arrangement was performed at the TLU concert in celebration of Clark's life.
Note to Conductor: While Oboe solo is preferred at the beginning and ending of the piece, cross-cues are provided in the Flute and Alto Saxophone parts.
