Mary Had A Baby - guitar sextet

Mary Had A Baby - 6 guitars

This Afro-American Spiritual contains the words "and the train done gone" - a phrase that is said to represent the Gospel Train taking people to a better life.

And what better excuse than to underpin a gloriously choral melody with some steam engine pistons and whistles!

It suits 6 guitars, but a large ensemble will find it easier to make a massive and impressive sound, and you can take the piece at whatever speed seems comfortable - it works slowly and it works quickly!
