Harriet Tubman

In a new SSAA voicing, this is an outstanding arrangement of the song originally penned by Walter Robinson and a timely honor as the anti-slavery activist's image will be on the new twenty dollar bill. A cappella vocals build with a come on up followed by rhythmic vocals under the hypnotic melody. Optional cabaca part helps to imitate a train along with vocal nuances resembling the sound of chains and a train whistle. Powerful and moving!

Various Arrangers : American Folk Songs Vol 3

Kathleen McGuire has created an outstanding arrangement of the glorious song "Harriet Tubman", originally penned by Walter Robinson, about the famous leader of the famous Underground Railroad. A cappella vocals that build with a "come on up" followed by rhythmic vocals under the hypnotic melody. Optional cabaca part suggested. Layered under that is the sound of percussion imitating a train and vocal nuances resembling the sound of chains and also a train whistle. Incredibly powerful and moving! It's a must for every choir's library. Eric Lane Barnes has a very unique writing style and he has done it again with the choral, Glee! This creative a cappella gem is quite entertaining, hearkening back to the days of the glee club songs of Yale and Harvard. This work is an excellent tool to teach harmonics. Listen to the middle section that contains a sequence of ascending diminished 7th chords with lyrics announcing the definition of the word, "glee." Novel, yet eloquent in its style and performance possibilities, Glee is "gleefully" a winner for any program. There is an early American feel to "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing" that coordinates wonderfully with the text and adds a sense of authenticity to the whole. This treatment is a welcome addition to other versions of this piece because of its unique approach. Use during Pentecost or for general use. For harvest time, consider this medley of Thanksgiving favorites arranged by Chuck Bridwell. Contrasting sections include We Gather Together set to the tune Ash Grove, a fresh harmonization of Now Thank We All Our God sung a cappella, and a lovely arrangement of Handel's Thanks Be to Thee. Gracious and festive, Songs of Thanksgiving is the perfect adoration medley for the season of gratitude. The sturdy American folksong "Meeting Is Over" has been given new life through the skillful arranging of James Clemens. Maintaining the hollow, open harmonies and steady rhythmic movement of Early American music, Clemens adds some fresh counterpoints and syncopations to really liven things up. Meeting Is Over is dynamic!

Songlist: Harriet Tubman, Glee, Coffee Grows On White Oak Trees, Cindy, Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing, Songs Of Thanksgiving, Meeting Is Over

Stairheid Gossip : Stirring It Up

All-woman Folk quintet from the Scottish lowlands Stairheid Gossip bring us a well-crafted collection of traditional tunes. The South Aftrican song "Bahele Bonke" is about leaders imprisoned in Longweni Prison moves us even though we have no idea what the words mean. The children's chant "King of the Castle" by Colum Sands, is given far deeper meaning. "Rantin' Dog" tells the timeless tale of an unmarried mother worried about getting help to care for her child. Stairheid's versions "High Germany" and the great labor song "Women o' Dundee," and "Johnny I Hardly Knew You" touch the heart and bring a tear to the eye, and "Didn't Leave Nobody But the Baby" from the movie "O Brother Where Art Thou" is particularly wonderful. Back to Scotland for "Aye Waukin O," a song of unrequited love, and they nail "Cotton Mill Girls," a spirited American working woman's song. 17 tracks, with some light percussion and guitar, which take us through the centuries and around the world with spirit, deep feeling and magic, which must only be multiplied in their live performances.

Songlist: The Burning of Auchindoon, Bahlele Bonke, King of the Castle, Rantin' Dog, Harriet Tubman, High Germany, Women O' Dundee, Johnny I Hardly Knew You, Didn't I Leave Nobody But The Baby, Baron o' Brackley, Igama Lama You Can Put Me Down, Aye Waukin O, Cotton Mill Girls, Bone Upon Stone, Both Sides of the Tweed, Wagoner's Lad, The Twa Corbies
