Spiritual Jubilee by Linda Spevacek. For TTBB choir, piano. Concert, Multicultural, Spiritual. Octavo. Published by Heritage Music Press (LO.15-2280H).
Don't even think about missing this exuberant concert/festival winner! Snippets of various spirituals are creatively interspersed throughout several verses and key changes of "Down by the Riverside." Featured are: "Get on Board, Little Children;" "I Got a Robe;" "Every Time I Feel the Spirit;" "All Night, All Day;" "Jacob's Ladder;" "Ain't-a That Good News;" "I'm Gonna Sing" and "Great Day." Culminating with several juxtaposed spirituals in a 12-bar finale and complete with hand claps, this one's a showstopper!
