    I have owned the two volume Riccordi edition of these songs since the 70's (!) & find them wonderful to fill out a recital programme, & useful for church performances. I expected this edition to be exactly the same repertoire, but no. The spectacular "Deep River" & "Swing Low" are there, but also...

    "Motherless Child". Great songs, & Dr Burleigh's arrangements are a joy. Start as a young singer and enjoy for a lifetime!
