Go Down Moses


This setting of the familiar spiritual is not what one would expect. The use of repeated motifs in the parts that support the melody makes it very accessible to the early adolescent singer. It's easy to learn and fun to sing.


The four-part variable voicing chart indicates how to use the piece with different age groups.

When you click the title of Go Down Moses you will be able to access an engraved copy of the piece.  When the new page appears, if you haven't already downloaded the scorch plug-in, you will be asked to do so. This plug-in gives you access to all the scores on the Cambiata Press website.  After the music appears on your screen, there are TWO WAYS to view and hear it:

1.  Click the "play" icon and you will hear the piece played electronically, and as it plays, the cursor will lead your vision through the piece.  Read the text as you listen to the music.


2.  Click the "Hear Choir Audio" link (upper right hand corner) to hear a choral ensemble sing the piece.  Use the Sibelius "page" icon to move the pages of the engraved copy manually as you listen.  Do not click the "play" icon while the ensemble is singing or you will hear both renditions simultaneously.
