Deep River Collection #1
- Hal Leonard Corporation
This collection of ten spirituals for solo voice and piano displays Moses Hogan's depth of understanding of the African-American spiritual. The harmonic structure of the piano accompaniments complement perfectly the lyrical melodies, allowing the listener not just to hear, but to experience these spirituals. Without question, this is one of the finest collections of spirituals published since those of Harry T. Burleigh. Contents are: Deep River; He Never Said a Mumbalin' Word; Give Me Jesus; He's Got the Whole World in His Hands; Let Us Break Bread Together; My Good Lord's Done Been Here; Somebody's Knockin' at Yo' Door; Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child; Were You There?
and Walk Together Children.
