Info zu Sing Freedom! African-American Spirituals

One of the seminal American musical traditions, the spiritual is dramatic, powerful, and profoundly beautiful — the bedrock for much of American music that was to follow.

Craig Hella Johnson and his Conspirare choral ensemble are known for their unique and thoughtfully programmed concerts, and to that we should add, generously filled recordings. Here is 72 minutes of soul-stirring music, drawing from the vast repertoire of both classic and modern arrangements of African American spirituals, including several by Conspirare director Johnson and three premieres--by David Lang, Tarik O'Regan, and Robert Kyr - that are not spirituals, but are influenced and inspired by the genre.

Craig Hella Johnson and Conspirare explore here the genre's wide range of expression and its eloquence in speaking to universal aspects of the human condition.
