    If you're bored with the classical and pop music you've been playing for years, this will be a breath of fresh air. The composer's intent was to save these African and African-American songs from obscurity. Book 1 contains African songs, Books 2 & 3 African-American songs...

    and spirituals. The masterpiece is "Deep River" (Book 2), but all of the music is knock-down gorgeous and if you buy one book you'll want them all. My current favorite in Book 1 is "Oloba," an exciting arrangement of a drum call. But I also love the heartbreaking "They Will Not Lend Me a Child" and "The Stones are Very Hard," which is a bit easier than the others.
