So You Want to Sing Spirituals Events
Recorded Concert Spirituals
This is a proposal for a guide to commercially produced recordings of Negro spirituals composed for solo concert vocalists. The listing includes over 5,600 track entries covering more than a century of recordings on compact discs, long-playing albums, 78 rpm records, 45 rpm discs, digital streamed files, audio cassettes, as well as demonstration recordings from musical score collections. The book’s goal is to assist the vocalist, the vocal coach/teacher or the accompanist who is looking for these recorded resources. More information is available at Recorded Concert Spirituals
The Art of the Negro Spiritual is launching a audio playlist of recordings by historical and contemporary vocalists performing concert spirituals. The playlist is still under development, but there are already over eight hours of recordings of solo voice and choral performances spanning the century of African American spirituals. Visitors have the option of selecting specific tracks or setting the playlist to shuffle through the available tracks. Please click on the link to access the ANS Playlist
