I’ve Been in the Storm So Long

A simple, soulful spiritual with two voices. The melody is in the higher voice throughout so I didn’t include another track of that voice alone.

Composer & Copyright

Traditional. In the public domain. This arrangement is based upon an arrangement by Ysaye Barnwell, found in her vocal method book, Singing in the African American Tradition.
