From the publisher:
Drs. Rosephanye and William C. Powell are a husband and wife team who are acknowledged world experts in the African-American spiritual. The contribution of their skills and knowledge makes Spirituals for Upper Voices an inspirational collection!
This is an outstanding collection of twelve African-American spirituals arranged for upper voices. Rosephanye and William C. Powell have collaborated with some of the most talented and respected spiritual arrangers in the United States to deliver specially commissioned, authentic settings. You’ll find familiar melodies, such as ‘Deep River’ and ‘Somebody’s knockin’ at yo’ do”, alongside lesser-known spirituals, and a range of styles and moods extending from the aspirational to the celebratory. Many of the arrangements include a ‘lead voice’ part, allowing the opportunity for solo singing, and idiomatic piano parts support the voices for the accompanied spirituals; piano reductions are included for the unaccompanied arrangements. This inspirational journey through the African-American spiritual tradition is sure to captivate and delight all upper-voice choirs.
