Big Black Train

About the song:  A much-loved song that can be sung as children process as a train.  

About the arrangement:  The arrangement begins with a train-whistle, and the choir then imitates the sound of a steam train slowly starting up.  The cellos and basses join in the accellerando (getting faster), and once the train has reached full speed the song begins.  During the song the violins interrupt, imitating the train whistle.  The train then slows down again as comes into a station, and the solo violin plays the melody for the last time.
