Lay Me Low
Sister Addah Z. Potter of the New Lebanon, New York, Shaker community
The Shaker ideals of simplicity and humility are evident in this text and tune attributed to Addah Z. Potter of the New Lebanon, New York, Shaker community (ca. 1838). This arrangement keeps the original lyric "Mother", which refers to Mother Ann Lee, the charismatic leader of the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, commonly known in America as the Shakers. Shaker belief held that Mother Ann Lee was the embodiment of the second coming of Christ. Premiered by Aurora Chorus, December 2013.
