What a marvelous collection! Good settings of spirituals are always welcome in sacred or educational settings and this handsome compilation for mixed voices is a celebration of the spiritual style. Pull out all the stops with one setting, and fine-tune your choir's expressive nuances with another setting as you enjoy some of the finest examples from this distinctly American tradition. Solo opportunities, optional percussion, accompanied and a cappella arrangements - all this and more are represented in My Lord, What a Morning; This Little Light of Mine; How Sweet the Sound (Amazing Grace); Kum Bah Yah; Go Down, Moses and There is a Balm in Gilead.
