ERB test sample. First grade entrance exam.
This song is absolutely beautiful.
For the high E, I didn’t hear one guy that was off. I’m giving this recording to my section to listen to. Thank you
Great work well done. I love this song. this arrangement. This choir is so talented. Great sound from the basses! The basses are what makes this song so good.
This arrangement is amazing.
I was a member of the University of Richmond Choir for whom our director, James Erb, created this arrangement 40 years ago. We sang it from mimeographed manuscript on our tour of Europe in March of 1971. What a brilliant legacy of music making Dr. Erb has given all of us! I am so glad this arrangement has been discovered by so many choirs.
well that was amazing we’re working on it in the choir i’m in but we’re a high school choir i’m an alto i love we dont sound nearly as good as you guys though
Well done Biola! With the dearth of music education left in our schools, it’s comforting to hear great performances like this are still out there
very nice, I am hoping we get something like this when we learn this song for new york. Now, if only i can get that low C# before we go, haha…

Beautiful. Very, very beautiful.
The only thing that sucks in this is the noises the audience makes in the background
I need to learn the soprano 1 part on my own for a music clinic and this recording is really helping:)
How could someone dislike this? It’s absolutely beautiful.
Beautiful! Well done indeed! I am in a group which will perform that arrangement this spring. Here’s hoping …well, we’ve just begun to work on it.
This is the greatest arrangement of this song… period. I’ve been listening to this particular arrangement anywhere I could find it for a few years now, and was shocked to find the sheet music for it, this very arrangement, was actually stored away in my high school choir room the whole time. Trying to get my director to do it this spring! So beautiful… it makes me cry.
we did this exact arrangement in my women’s choir and i am contemplating BIOLA as a college so i looked up its choir on you tube and here i am!!!! wow so cool a coincidence
All i can say is Amazing !!!
