The impressive Marian Anderson String Quartet has established a Continuing the Legacy commissioning project, to honor the 75th anniversary of their namesake's performance at the Lincoln Memorial, as well as their own 25th anniversary. Hailstork is one of a handful of American composers invited to create a 21st century string quartet based upon "songs of the African Diaspora." His choice of Swing Low, Sweet Chariot has led to an evocative, but moving string quartet. Also available for string orchestra, on a rental basis. For advanced performers. Dur.: 15'.
