The “Dean of Black Women Composers,” Undine Smith Moore, created this burst of thanksgiving for her alma mater, the famous Fisk University Jubilee Singers.
Using an array of contrapuntal and rhythmic skill influenced with African American flavor, this would be an exciting choice for a festival or larger choir looking for a worthwhile challenge.
The divisi, syncopations, and 32nd-note alleluias appear intimidating at first glance but lie well for the voice and could be learned quickly.
A true masterpiece!
