The angels in heaven done signed my name! Lord, I know I been changed! This spiritual is a must for every choral library. Rhythmic but not rushed, the accompaniment creates a mood of quiet exhilaration with a soulful combination of chords and rhythmic patterns. Suggesting a choir of angels, the sopranos sing in call-and-response with the lower voices, gradually building in intensity through the final stanza.
