Twelve Gates Into the City arranged by Larry Shackley. For SATB choir. Sacred, Blues-Gospel-Spirituals, General. Rehearsal/Performance CD. Published by Hope Publishing Company (HP.HO1828C).
A masterpiece of composition in a "blues-spiritual" style. Larry Shackley has created an irresistible, energetic piece in the tradition of the "toe-tapping, tambourine-thumping" gospel choir anthem. Church and school choirs alike will love singing and swinging to this one. The keyboard accompaniment as well as the track are equally impressive.
