Freedom Is Coming / Hamba Vangeli
Arr. Alexander L'Estrange
Faber Choral Singles
with Opt. Piano
Freedom is coming is an incredibly infectious celebration of hope and freedom from oppression. I have coupled it with Hamba Vangeli ("Spread the new word"), as its musical feel and declamatory message follow on well. Pay attention to the dynamics -- there are lots of opportunities for contrasts and a gradual build-up of texture, as well as chances for soloists to sing out. In Freedom Is Coming, watch out for the different rhythm on "oh yes I . . . know" -- it might catch you out!
