    I have a passionate love for great choir music where the audience feels what the musicions on stage feel. This song ruins the beauty of this of this musical emotion! giving a song like this extra insturments and an upbeat feel is not how it is meant to sound. Every...

    time this song is preformed, it deprives the audience and all the singers of an experince that is indescribable. If you want to preform this piece look up Alabama all state 2011 down in the river to pray. I have herd both preformed in real life, one makes tears of true music joy, the other destroies a good piece of music!
