  • July 31, 2010 King's Singers Review

    This was really hard but our group practised Swing Low Sweet Chariot for ages and once we got it sorted it sounded ace. The audience was stoked out of their tree. Well worth buying this book if you belong to a dedicated group looking for a challenge

  • September 23, 2008 Spirituals to Savour

    A good collection of mainly well known Spirituals but nearly all of them require good male lines with frequent divisi for tenors and basses. This will prevent many groups from using this collection.

  • April 21, 2008 Brilliant!

    A great collection with typically skilful arrangements particularly of Swing Low and Deep River. Down to the River reminds me of Alison Krauss's rendition in the film O Brother Where Art Thou, but adds some clever twists which makes it stand out from that version. Very useful as a...

    concert opener.
