Expressions of Freedom Complete Edition (Anthology of African-American Spirituals) composed by Rene Boyer-Alexander. Arranged by Rene Boyer-Alexander. Complete Ed. Expressive Art (Choral). 152 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.9970235).

ISBN 0634029215. 8.5x11 inches.

The history of the African American people was one of physical hardship and emotional anguish, yet the music arising from this struggle – the spiritual – was one of deeply-felt emotion. This collection of spirituals, arranged by Rene Boyer-Alexander for voices and Orff instruments, is much more than a mere song collection. It is a chronicle of expression that will enrich and uplift both children and adults in classrooms, choirs, community gatherings and churches. In three volumes or one complete edition, it includes arrangements of over 55 songs, historical background, suggested program uses and cultural connections.

Available: Volume I, Volume II, Volume III, Complete Edition. For all ages.
