Description

The choir book "Hallelujah. Gospels and Spirituals" takes you into the fascinating world of African American Folk songs. The approximately 30 Spirituals and Gospels are set for mixed choir a cappella or with piano. Occasionally solo voices (or a small choir group) are required. The arrangements with their gripping rhythms, their groove, the alternation of call and response, their blue notes and other elements of jazz and blues can carry performers and listeners away in equal measure.

Even for choirs that may have little experience with the gospel style, this choral book of medium difficulty offers an easy approach. Tips from the editors on how to perform and a CD recording with a selection of the arrangements will help you to rehearse.

In their expressive and touching narrative of oppression and suffering on the one hand and redemption and freedom through faith on the other, the spirituals and gospels are suitable for many occasions in concert and service.
