Book/4 CD pack. Individuals, friends, choirs, church, camp and community groups of any background will enjoy participating in this uplifting tradition. All you need is a willingness to sing. Ysaye, a charter member of Sweet Honey in the Rock, teaches melodies, harmonies, rhythms and counter-melodies to 17 traditional songs from African American culture, including spirituals, ring shouts, hymns, gospels and songs from the civil rights movement. For each song, you'll hear the full multi-part arrangement before Ysaye breaks out the lead or melody; then the melody is sung in relation to each of the harmony parts - with soprano, tenor and bass demonstrated separately. 56 pp.   More Details...
