 Walk Together Children is a vastly underappreciated spiritual. I am amazed at the lack of arrangements of this song, as its wonderfully expressive melody and harmonies express such a clear and wonderful message of unity. My setting starts out rubato, moves into a sweet little shuffle rhythm supported by the basses (it almost sounds like "The Fairfield Four" for awhile) and then finishes strongly.

Complete perusal score available upon request.


 

TEXT

Walk together children, don't you get a-weary,
Walk together children, don't you get a-weary,
Talk together children, there's a great camp meetin' in de Promis'd Land. 

Sing together children, donít you get a-weary
Sing together children, donít you get a-weary
Shout together children, there's a great camp meetin' in de Promis'd Land  

Gonna moan, gonna moan, 
gonna moan an' never tire,
there's a great camp meet-in' in de Promis'd Land.

[various repetitions]
