Paul John Rudoi's narrative arrangement is not just another medley of spirituals. Paul's choice to combine Yonder Come Day, a spiritual championed by Bessie Jones and the Georgia Sea Island Singers, with specific spirituals, including "Hush, Hush," "Somebody's Calling My Name," "Steal Away," and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," well known for coded messages was intentional, shedding light on the hope required to move beyond the horrific atrocities millions encountered because of American slavery, Jim Crow era tactics, and more. The unused parts of these spirituals are no less important, and should be mentioned along with Bessie, the Singers, and other parts of this history when learning this piece. Ultimately, it is built to serve as a testament to the courage of those enslaved, a statement of hope for anyone marginalized, and a small part in the continuing conversation about our shared American history.
