The output of African-American female composers has been hitherto unexplored. Their music has a distinct voice, drawing heavily on the experiences of their history, this large repertory of compositions and arrangements are intense in their emotion and colour.
Combining a cappella and accompanied choral music, and solo song, this unique programme from Ken Burton and the London Adventist Chorale will cover a diverse range of works from classical composition to spirituals and gospel. Among the composers and works represented are Price’s Sympathy, Bonds’ Dream Portraits, Moore’s Three Songs and Osterman’s Walk Together Children, Simpson-Currenton’s How Come Me Here? and Powell’s powerful Still I Rise.
