Because of their haunting melodies, their captivating rhythms and the frequent episodes of call & response, spirituals are always a popular element in choral programmes. These ten arrangements for mixed choir SATB are characterised by riveting harmonic patterns, polished voice leading and a varied choral arrangement that gives each voice an opportunity to sparkle. Robert Latham gives each of the ten arrangements its own highly individual character, and fashions the spirituals into fascinating works of music that will create a furore not only in religious services but also in concerts and competitions. A rewarding challenge for dedicated choirs!
