Every time I feel the spirit
Cotton needs a pickin'

Extract courtesy members of The Oxford Singers directed by David Crown.

  1. Every time I feel the spirit
  2. Cotton needs a pickin'

These two American spirituals were arranged by Malcom Pearce for a capella choir. There is a rehearsal piano part supplied.

"These two arrangements are in four parts throughout, with only brief optional divisi in the soprano part. They have been successfully performed and enjoyed with both large choirs and one-to-a-part consorts. "Ev'ry time I feel the spirit" is contemplative enough to be suited to church worship, whilst "Cotton needs a pickin'" builds into a climatic jam-session before subsiding to a wittily subdued conclusion."Malcolm Pearce
