About Kum-ba-ya Variations
This arrangement was designed for Middle School and easy High School use in situations where there are no (or few) color instruments such as oboe, bassoon, bass clarinet, tenor and baritone saxophones. The arrangements will sound complete with only flutes, clarinets and alto saxophones, but optional parts are provided for those color instruments which when added will add depth and color to the total sound. Kum ba Yah is a song first sung by African-American slaves in the south and has become a familiar and popular song for all ages and races. The title simply means "Come By Here" and serves as an invitation for Jesus to be present whenever they gathered for worship and relief from their difficult lives. This arrangement includes four contrasting treatments of the tune There is some rhythmic independence in all parts, and each part needs to emphasize the tones marked with accidentals to bring out the richness and the surprises in the harmony.
