Enjoy The Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square perform the beautiful American spiritual “Down to the River to Pray”, arranged by Mack Wilberg.
“Down in the River to Pray” (also known as “Down to the River to Pray,” “Down in the Valley to Pray,” “The Good Old Way,” and “Come, Let Us All Go Down”) is a traditional American song variously described as a Christian folk hymn, an African-American spiritual, an Appalachian song, and a gospel song. It gained popularity in 2000 after Alison Krauss performed it for the soundtrack of the Coen Brothers film, O Brother, Where Art Thou?.
The exact origin of the song is unknown. Research suggests that it was composed by an African-American slave. – Wikipedia
