WELCOME TABLE

Here’s a fun arrangement of an African-American spiritual that may not be as well-known as others of the genre, but it is certainly worthy of being introduced to any audience or congregation. As many spirituals do, this one speaks of the promise of being with God in eternity, eating “milk and honey at the welcome table.”

Here’s a fun arrangement of an African-American spiritual that may not be as well-known as others of the genre, but it is certainly worthy of being introduced to any audience or congregation. As many spirituals do, this one speaks of the promise of being with God in eternity, eating “milk and honey at the welcome table.” It boasts an upbeat tempo and a gospel feel rhythm as well as traditional voicing and a great “walking” bass line in the third verse. Perfect for quartets, ensembles or choirs – quick and easy to prepare – this piece is one you’ll keep close at hand!
