The latest recording in the African American Church Music Series, The Lord Is My Light, is simply bursting with a wonderful array of music: anthems with organ and trumpets; a hymn arrangement; gospel selections in contemporary and traditional styles; and lesser known a cappella spirituals by composers/arrangers Clayton White, Uzee Brown, Jr., and the pioneer of the concert Negro spiritual, Harry T. Burleigh
Recorded in Cannon Chapel at Emory University in Atlanta, this CD features a collection of talented voices from various Georgia universities and the broader Atlanta community.
