For the American slaves, crossing the River Jordan was a metaphor for passing from this world to the next. In Deep river the longing to ‘cross over’ is movingly expressed. The mood of this spiritual is perfectly captured in Norman Luboff’s classic arrangement; he was a leading American choir director and choral arranger who helped bring about a significant awakening of choral music in America in the second half of the twentieth century, both through the recordings and concert appearances of his own choir, and through his work as a conductor, arranger and publisher.
