Deep River

This deeply powerful African-American Spiritual has become one of the most recognized and beloved songs in American culture. This arrangement stays true to the spirit of Henry T. Burleigh’s famous setting while contributing a few new ideas. An arrangement for flute/violin and piano is also available.
