"Swing Low Sweet Chariot" was first recorded in the early 1900's and has appeared throughout media, film and TV since. It's been notably sung by Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, Eric Clapton, Ella Eyre, and many a Rugby player!

It's quite a high pitched piece, so if you're finding it too challenging and want to make it easier, try shifting the notes down a few semitones until it's within a conformatable range. Good luck, enjoy your practice!
