We sang alot of Benjamin Britten, and our choirmaster was a huge fan of spirituals so we sang "I Want Jesus To Walk With Me" and "Soon I Will Be Done With the Troubles of the World." At the same time (high school) I was singing at folk festivals and I used to constantly pester him about songs for us to sing. I won out a couple of times with the small girls' ensemble he also taught, of which I was a member. We sang "Fair and Tender Maidens" and made our principle cry over it at a school assembly, which we considered a great triumph as she was know as a true hard-nose.
I still remember the soprano parts to so many songs we sang. I think I recall stuff more readily from that time than I do from yesterday.
:~(. Old-timer's setting in perhaps?
