Trinity College an all boys school in Perth, Western Australia performing an arrangement on Down To The River To Pray by P Lawson (King Singers) at Presentation Night. Conducted by Doctor Robert Braham.

This is a slightly unusual rendition of the Negro Spiritual – not an arrangement I'd heard before but it captured my full attention and admiration immediately. I've added the lyrics below the video. Enjoy :-).
