This Train : SATB : Dale Jergenson : Dale Jergenson : Songbook : CH-1349

Dale Jergenson : This Train

This Train was first arranged for the Los Angeles Master Chorale Outreach Ensemble in the mid 1980's. It was revived and rearranged to include a children's chorus for the Gregg Smith Singers third concert in their 1999 New York City Series which was held at St. Peter's Church in Manhatten with the Central Park East Elementaqry School Choir and, of course, the Gregg Smith Singers. The piano part is written to simulate the feel of a banjo as the primary accompanying force. The children's chorus part at the end, as indicated in the score, contains an optional divisi into three parts. If desired, sopranos from the SATB chorus may sing any of these notes. American Folk Song
Duration 2:30

This Train : SSA : Peter Frost : Sheet Music : GIA7473 : 785147747307

Peter Frost : This Train

The traditional spiritual is arranged in a bit of a folk-rock style, with a highly syncopated and involved bass line in the piano typical of that played by an electric bass. On an eight-bar section about half way through, two groups of singers use non-pitched sounds to great effect to create the sound of an old locomotive. This is a developed arrangement that makes a crowd pleasing concert piece. Cambiata part is optional
