Description

Time Signature: 4/4                       Key: D Major

Go Tell It On The Mountain is an African – American spiritual song, compiled by John Wesley Work Jr., dating back to at least 1865.
(Source: Wikipedia)

Work, the son of a church choir director in Nashville, was the first person to write down, collect and publish African – American spirituals. Up until then, they were passed down verbally, from one generation to another.

Go Tell It On The Mountain is considered a Christmas Carol, as it’s original lyrics celebrate the Nativity of Jesus.

Melodically, the song is mostly pentatonic, with a couple of notes that are exceptions.

In the Chorus, the solfege m mrd l, s, d  is repeated for the lyrics, “Go tell it on the mountain”.

In other words, the repeated melody is a straight run down the pentatonic scale.

This African – American song is a traditional Gospel song.

It is a great song for teaching and reinforcing the 4/4 beat with it’s accent on the first and third beats.

Learning about body percussion, with different actions for the first and third beat, would be a good use of this gospel song.

After keeping the beat is mastered, children could transfer to untuned percussion instruments with simple emphasis on the accented beats.

Teaching Points:  beat, accent, traditional African – American Spiritual song, traditional Christmas song.
