Oh Shenandoah (Mixed Voices)

Thumbnail 240

Voicings: SA/Men & Piano

Accompaniment: Accompanied

Oh Shenandoah dates back to the early nineteenth century, with possible origins in Virginia. Sometimes referred to as a ‘shanty’ song because of its refrain (‘away, you rolling river,’ etc.), its lyrics exist in many versions and can be seen as a paean either to the river itself, or perhaps to the (mythical?) daughter of an Indian chief of that name. Regardless of its origins, Oh Shenandoah has become an enduring favourite both in the USA and further afield.

This piece is part of the Faber Choral Singles series, offering a selection of beautifully crafted arrangements in a diversity of musical styles. From Broadway, pop and folk to spirituals, gospel and original works, the series is arranged for 3-part choir (soprano, alto and a combined male-voice part) providing flexibility for any choir. Complete with straight-forward piano accompaniments supporting the vocal lines, the Faber Choral Singles series guarantees the perfect repertoire for every occasion – so get exploring and get singing!
