Contemporary Vocal and African. Difficulty: medium-difficult. Vocal score. Vocal score notation, introductory text, performance notes, black & white photos and discography. 170 pages.

ISBN 0634012746. With vocal score notation, introductory text, performance notes, black & white photos and discography. Contemporary Vocal and African. 9x12 inches.

Sweet Honey in the Rock's musical sound has been described in High Fidelity magazine as breathtaking excursions into harmony singing and in Down Beat as neck-hair raising. This six-member African-American a cappella women's group has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. This wonderful collection compiled and edited by Ysaye M. Barnwell features three original compositions and one traditional song arrangement by each of the five singing members. The songs are presented in choral score for easy use by vocal ensembles. Also includes a moving foreword by Harry Belafonte, an introduction by Horace Clarence Boyer, the group's Her-story, a discography with album covers, photos, and extensive composer's and performance notes.

  • October 06, 2006 Fabulous! More than a songbook!

    Great reading (and great singing) for the SHR fan, with the advantage of expert transcriptions of live performances. Performance notes can't be beat. We use this in a mixed a capella group--the Bass part is not accessible to any but the most extraordinary female voice.
