Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho
This rollicking spiritual will both charm and delight with its easy swing, lively melody, and energetic plucks. A slower, meditative middle section with lots of LVs provides contrast. Advanced groups may increase the tempo for more excitement culminating in a rousing ending as the notes plunge emphatically to convey a glorious sense of "the walls tumblin' down!" This is another addition to Susan Geschke's popular and useful Two-Octave Gem Series. 60 measures in length, this arrangement is scored in c minor.
