Product Details


The struggle and suffering described in American Sprituals go hand in hand with an overwhelming sense of hope for a better life. Deep River is one of the most popular spirituals, which includes some adventurous harmonies in this arrangement. The Spiritual Medley combines three songs all creatively reworked by Ben Parry.

Choral Basics has set new standards in choral publishing. It offers straightforward and rewarding repertoire for beginner choirs of all ages in a dazzling array of styles including world music, spirituals, pop classics, show hits and original pieces. Each piece is carefully considered for the level by consultant editor Alexander L'Estrange and offers simple 2 or 3-part arrangements for soprano, alto (and a combined male voice part), paying particular attention to breathing, vocal ranges and technique whilst straightforward piano accompaniments support the vocal lines. The series offers unbeatable value for money, as each volume comprises a set of contrasting songs for easy programming.
