This edition offers exciting arrangements that have never before appeared in print, written in an authentic idiom for three-part women's or girls' choir with piano accompaniment. The spirituals can also be performed without piano, with the lead melody always in the upper voice.

All the arrangements can be combined with the already published edition “64 Spirituals a cappella” (BA 7574) which is for SATB. To give you an example: a children's choir working with our new edition can appear with a mixed chorus that has already mastered the SATB settings. In addition twelve of the arrangements can be enhanced by instrumental accompaniments. These are to be found in the “Spirituals” edition (BA 6699) of our “ComboCom” series which offers flexible instrumental settings.

•33 exciting and varied arrangements, 80 pages
•All songs compatible with the SATB edition (BA 7574)
•12 spirituals also compatible with the flexible instrumentation edition (BA 6699)

Deep river / O happy day / Joshua / King of kings / Motherless child / Nobody knows / O sinner man / Swing low, sweet chariot / Wade in the water / Were you there / When the saints, and twenty-two other popular as well as less well-known spirituals.
