Deep River Rag
For Piano solo (1996)
by Ron Hannah


Duration: about 4 minutes

    When I arranged Deep River for double choir in 1993, I felt it appropriate to give it a sinuous ragtime accompaniment, much like Joplin's "Solace". I was so pleased with the piano part, that I tweaked it a little and it became a piece of piano music in its own right. I don't state the 'Deep River' tune anywhere in it, but those specially attuned will hear it anyway. Both are published by Conners Publications.
