Another Field - SATB

Audio

 

  • Another Field

    Another Field, SATB with bass solo, is written in the Negro Spiritual tradition. When looking at the founding of the United States on principals of the Judaeo-Christian tradition, it was impossible for the composer to ignore the faith of those living in slavery at that time. The slaves sang spirituals to help them endure, and this piece is a tribute to them and their faith. The "other field" that they dream of is, of course, Heaven, and the kind Master they long for is Christ. Listed as a bass solo, it is in actuality more of a baritone range with an SATB choir. Stirring and moving addition to your choir's a cappella repertoire.

    Music and lyrics: Cathy Neff (ASCAP)

    Well, I works all day in da field,
    Oh, I works da masser's cotton,
    And I know jus' how it feels
    To feel you been forgotten,
    But I know another Field where
    I know another Masser,
    And I feel My Masser's love come a-tumblin' down.

    Oh, can you feel da Masser's glory?
    Oh, can you feel da Masser's love?
    Oh, I can feel da Masser's glory all around me
    An' it feels jus' like da rain come a-tumblin' down.

    Oh, can you see da Masser's glory?
    Oh, can you see da Masser's love?
    Oh, I can see da Masser's glory all around me
    An' it looks jus' like da rain come a-tumblin' down.

    Oh, can you hear da Masser's glory?
    Oh, can you hear da Masser's love?
    Oh, I can hear da Masser's glory all around me
    An' it sounds jus' like da rain come a-tumblin' down.

    Sing hallelujah!

    When my work's all done in da field,
    And I worked the masser's cotton,
    Oh, I won't know how it feels
    To feel I been forgotten,
    'Cuz I'll have another field where
    I'll have another Masser,
    And I'll feel My Masser's love come a-tumblin' down.
