(All Ages) ANTHOLOGY OF AFRICAN AMERICAN SPIRITUALS. The history of the African American people was one of physical hardship and emotional anguish. The music arising from this struggle - the spiritual - reflects those deeply- felt emotions. This collection of spirituals, arranged by Rene Boyer-Alexander for voices and Orff instruments, is much more than a mere song collection. It is a chronicle of expression that will enrich and uplift both children and adults in classrooms, choirs, community gatherings and churches.
