Blues-Gospel-Spirituals, General, Sacred.

From arranger, Lloyd Larson, here is an impressive musical celebration of the African American spiritual. The adaptability and endurance of these songs passed down to us from the African American slaves reveals the universality of their themes and their ability to carry forward a message that transcends race, cultural differences and socio-economic classes. Performed in its entirety, this is a dramatic 30-minute musical filled with unforgettable emotion. The narration tells of the stories behind and meanings within the spirituals, and the struggles of the people who created and passed on this whole body of music so essential to our American heritage. Each arrangement can also be performed alone as individual choral anthems suitable for worship and concerts. Separate rhythm chart accompaniments and CD tracks are available. The Rhythm packet contains parts for: Guitar, Bass, Drums & Synthesizer.
