When Israel was in Egypt's land

I was obliged to learn "When Israel was in Egypt's land" at the behest of Ralf Barysch who I met in the Pinökel and must say it was well worth the effort. It has become my favourite gospel and I love singing it. The version that I sing can be found in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 1.
This version is has just four verses compared with the massive 25 verses given in The Story of the Jubilee Singers. It would be terrific to sing the original version but which of today's audiences could put up with it?
