"Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child" is a traditional Negro Spiritual. The song dates back to the times of slavery in the United States, when it was common practice t sell children of slaves away from their parents.

The song is clearly an expression of deep anguish and despair as it conveys the hopelessness of a child who has lost its mother.

It has been recorded by many notable artists. Van Morrison, Eric Clapton and the trumpeter WYNTON MARSALIS, just to name s few.

Also arranged for Alto Saxophone, or Tenor Saxophone, as a solo with piano accompaniment; and, as solo with a String Orchestra. Also arranged for Woodwind, Brass and String instrumental ensembles. Please see my homepage for more details.
