I will arise and go to Jesus

I Will Arise and Go To Jesus arr. Rob Barrett, Jr.
This is a project from my Audio Engineering 1 class from spring 2013. We learned about each instrument, miked it in a variety of ways and then recorded it into this arrangement, one at a time. I guess we just have really talented students at North Central University.
