Down In The Valley To Pray recorded with vocals by Doc Watson who brought the song to contemporary notice and Alison Krauss who brought it to prominence on the O Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack.
This album features an accomplished grouping of instrumentalists, but on this song its the lyrics, harmonies, and vocals that carry everything.

Here’s an album cut of the live performance.

Here’s some video of the same with a bit more commentary beforehand.
