Scoring:

In Moerane's arrangement of this tune, for Solo Soprano and SATB choir,  the  Soprano sings throughout and the choir hums in the verses and sings the chorus, 'Oh, Mourner don't you weep...'.  Moerane probably sourced it in the same book in which he sourced the tunes for his arrangements of ‘Nobody Knows The Trouble I’ve Seen’, ‘Go. Tell It On The Mountains’, and ‘I Got A Home In-a Dat Rock’: Negro Spirituals ‘Arranged for solo voice by H.T. Burleigh’, published in New York by Ricordi in 1917. The setting probably dates from c1938.
