    As a conductor of a Church Choir I found this music rising. Wonderful, that a SAB voicing is available, because we have lack of high men voices in our choir. The simply hand drum ostinato gives a meditative aspect.

    This arrangement is wonderful. It is filled with the inspiration and soul stiring changes in the wonderful tradition of the Negro Spirituals
