Sheet Music


Deep River is a spiritual of Afro-American origin. It was used in the 1929 film version of “Showboat”. The melody is also sung in the closing section of Michael Tippett’s oratorio “A Child of our Time” and was also adapted into the popular song “Dear Old Southland”. This fine arrangement by Mark Bassey was commissioned by Superbrass for their “Brass Taps” CD.
