Sing Freedom!: African-American Spirituals ()

Show Synopsis

Performances of African-American spirituals by predominantly white choirs in what conductor Craig Hella Johnson calls "choral art arrangements" can be dicey affairs; it's not common to hear a choir so free from the constraints of the written notes that it can soar with the kind of passion and spirit the music requires. Even so, spirituals are so durable they can make a powerful impact even in less-than-ideal performances, but it's a special pleasure to hear them sung as freely and intensely and beautifully as they are here ...
