The history of the African American people was one of physical hardship and emotional anguish, yet the music arising from this struggle - the spiritual - was one of deeply-felt emotion. 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. In three volumes or one complete edition, it includes arrangements of over 55 songs, historical background, suggested program uses and cultural connections. Available: Volume I, Volume II, Volume III, Complete Edition. For all ages.

Songs Include:

  • All Night, All Day
  • Chatter With The Angels
  • Children Go Where I Send Thee
  • Deep River
  • Dry Bones

"I must say your website is far better than any other I've encountered during my conquest for guitar picks sold on the web or at any retailer in my new town of residence. Your site was the first I've seen (of many) to have picks listed in an accessory department (the pictures were really swell) or any other I've checked, for that matter."

"Your service is excellent and has exceeded my expectation!!! To order an electric guitar for my son who lives in a different location was hectic and I'm so glad that we decided to place an order with you versus the other big website. Thank you for your truly professional and caring staff. We definitely will bring more business to you again in the near future. Your kind concern and follow up is highly appreciated. Thank you sooooo much"
