Rollo Dilworth: Spirituals for Mixed Voices Vol 1

Review: Opening with a slow rendition of 'Get on Board Little Children,' 'De Gospel Train' quickly picks up steam arriving at a memorable final chorus. Building from an opening ostinato to a rousing finish, 'Since I Laid My Burdens Down' can be performed a cappella or accompanied. Dilworth pays homage to Moses Hogan in his powerhouse, 'Jeremiah's Fire.' A tambourine drives the rhythm as the fiery vocals build to a breathtaking ending. Spectacular! Enjoy the challenge and reward of this contemporary setting of the traditional spiritual 'Sistah Mary' with its vibrant rhythms and fresh harmonization. An exciting and dramatic setting of the traditional spiritual "Roll, Jordan, Roll!", this substantial work is brimming with brilliance and virtuosity for choirs up to the challenge!

Songlist: Jeremiah's Fire!, Since I Laid My Burdens Down, Sistah Mary, Roll, Jordan, Roll!
