||This is an arrangement of an African-American Spiritual. Featured in the bass part of the accompaniment in “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child” is the passacaglia from the “Crucifixus” movement in Mass in B Minor by J.S. Bach. The intermingling of the two melodies creates a very poignant effect.
