Go Tell It!
 

 Go Tell It! 
Composer: Traditional American Spiritual  Arranger: Eric W. Unruh 

Voicing: SSA 
Season: Christmas  Released: March 2002 
Sample Sound File Listen
   From the Judith Herrington Choral Series comes ''Two Christmas American Spirituals,'' for treble choir with piano and tenor saxophone accompaniment. ''Go Tell It!,'' the best-known of the two is full of dynamic energy and rhythm. Dr. Unruh's setting of the other, ''Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow!'' is appropriately haunting, but grows in intensity and strength. While the two spirituals were designed to be performed as a pair, they can be presented separately with great effect.
