Bring Me Little Water Sylvie – Sheet MusicView Craig McLeish's Full Store
A wonderful spiritual made popular by Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie and many others, although I think their versions are often much more up tempo. There should ideally be a loose feel to the arrangement. Don’t by any means feel bound by what we have done, although the building blocks for a decent version are all there for you to use how you like.
This version uses a Cantor in the useful role of indicating what verse to sing next. Listen to the full mp3 as a guide. You can repeat verses, and there are others which have been used if you do a search online you will find them. At the end I have found it very effective to simply hum the chorus, and if you can do this with your eyes shut, it’s very moving indeed.
Our little outdoor singing group love singing this.
This is a beautiful arrangement. We have introduced some body percussion as seen on the internet! Everyone loves this song.
