Sometimes I Feel

Like a Motherless Child

Two Parts     Three Parts

Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child is one of the most pensive spirituals ever written.

Living and working with this music, if only for a brief time, will provide the young singers an opportunity to thoughtfully consider the intolerances, injustices and suffering that was the product of slavery in American history.


The three-part setting fits-- treb/C, C, B.
