    I had the honor of premiering three spirituals from this collection with Mr. Helvey himself. These are some of the most gorgeous arrangements of spirituals I have ever heard or sung, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to perform them. Mr. Helvey is a brilliant composer and...

    he has given new life to the history and message of these spirituals with this collection. He remains true to the melodies while experimenting with the rhythms, as well as the harmonies, in ways never heard before. The beautiful piano accompaniments partner with the vocal lines, often times creating a duet. Singers and listeners alike will enjoy this collection. Mr. Helvey has presented a fresh take on these historical pieces while maintaining the integrity of their traditional sounds.
