It is said that hope springs eternal for humanity. But where, one might ask, does humanity spring forth toward hope? Alice Parker might answer, "Here! through singing together, by joining our voices in praising God!" Take Me to the Water is a collection of thirteen arrangements of mid-nineteenth century African-American spirituals. This music rings loud and clear with Alice Parker's well-known love for the sound of a cappella spirituals.
