William E. Melton arranged the popular Cambiata Press
publications Ride the Chariot and I Got Shoes. Typical arranging techniques of this and similar works of this genre include: (1) solos or section solos accompanied by the choir; (2) call and response
by soloist and choir; (3) several repeats of the “chorus”; and (4) an
exuberant ending. Written in four-part variable voicing it calls for a SACB choior or a SSAB choir of older adolescents or
adults who sing in choirs with significantly more women than men.
