10 Mar 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.

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.

Hi, Lisa — This song is not in either of Ysaye Barnwell’s books. Did you perhaps learn it at a workshop of hers or elsewhere?
