Swing Low, Sweet Chariot arr. saxophone quartet


This is a very popular piece of music that in many respects transcends idiom, style & it could be suggested culture. This improver level arrangement is in common time while some of the accompanying chords and rhythmic shapes have been updated to give a more contemporary style. There are so many interpretations that it is almost impossible to decide how it should be sung, played & performed. This familiar spiritual gained popularity during the 1960’s with the Civil Rights movement and since 1988 it has become associated with the English rugby team. This arrangement explores a gentle rock style whilst the realisation plays back at a tempo of 100 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the bar. The full score includes a piano short score and individual parts for soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone are appended to the full score.
