Oh, Won't You Sit Down?


This Spiritual is best suited for all-male groups. 

Part I-- boy treb/cambiata I

Part II-- cambiata II

Part III-- baritone

As characteristic of many spirituals, this work is built on call-and-response, with the call in the form of a section solo. 

Lawrence has provided two endings.  The first ending is in a comfortable vocal range, whereas the optional second ending lies in the upper register, providing more challenging yet more dynamic closing. Choose the ending that works best for the singers.


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