In Dat Great Gettin Up Mornin

Lots of videos on YouTube, most seem to be distinguished by the quality of the tenor.

No video with this one from the Atlanta Master Chorus but a good straight forward performance exactly as written in the score.

I like the energy of this one and the soloist is certainly dramatic.

I like this one as well. I’m less fond of the the liberal use of scoops by both the tenor and the choir but they actually get some dynamics in there.

And one for trivia’s sake. Did you know that Jester Hairston did the arrangement for Amen in Lilies of the Field?
