Spirituals (also known as Negro spirituals, Spiritual music, or African-American spirituals) is a genre of songs originating in America, that were created by African Americans. Spirituals were originally an oral tradition that imparted Christian values while also describing the hardships of slavery. Although spirituals were originally unaccompanied monophonic (unison) songs, they are best known today in harmonized choral arrangements
Album of Negro Spirituals. Harry T. Burleigh set the standards for Negro Spiritual arrangements, and this is arguably the finest small collection to be found. Since everyone has heard these melodies before, Burleigh has made each piece come alive through the accompaniment. The tempo and the melodies are the same you have heard for years; it's the accompaniment that makes them fresh.
One dozen spirituals arranged for solo voice with accompaniment. Preserved in Burleigh's arrangements are the essential characteristics of these songs that generally derived from spontaneous outbursts of intense religious fervor. Titles: Couldn't Hear Nobody Pray Were You There Deep. Album of Negro Spirituals. Arr. for Solo Voice by Harry T. Burleigh Low Voice Book Item: 00-FC01433.
