Somebody's Knockin' at Your Door

Traditional African American Spiritual

Kevin S. Foster has taken clever to the top of the charts with this arrangement. An audience participation clap-fest is part of the mix. A tenor solo occasionally highlights the melody. A slow, tender beginning is soon replaced by fast and rhythmic fun. This one will bring the house down.

Spirituals are an important part of the educational canon for young singers, and they serve as a powerful reminder of the enduring cultural importance of the African American musical tradition. This unison/2-Part setting offers a playful sense of urgency as well as alternate lyrics for church and school use.

Various Arrangers : Spirituals for Mixed Voices Vol 3

In Witness, the men and women start in a call and response fashion, the next change comes with a fun walkin bass line with the rest of the voices singing beautiful harmonies... this is a fun tune! The rhythmic and expressive setting of the well known Spiritual, 'Rockin' Jerusalem' is a tribute to the work of Dale Warland. This arrangement will make an inspiring concert work for a skilled A Cappella choir. Originally, 'Wade in the Water' was a code song of the African-American slave that cautioned slaves to travel by water on their journey to freedom. Powell's arrangement captures the drama with beautiful harmony and powerful dynamics. The light humming of harmonies that start 'Somebody's Knockin' At Yo' Do'' will give you an idea of how exciting this piece could become, and sure enough it doesn't faulter from that expectation once throughout the song, this is a fantastic arrangement!

Songlist: Witness, Rockin' Jerusalem, Wade in the Water, Somebody's Knockin' at Your Door
