This vibrant collection by Uzee Brown Jr. includes his arrangements of some of the most well-known and best-loved spirituals of our time and two of Dr. Brown’s own original psalm settings, alongside some energetic, less-often heard spirituals that yield a unique flavor and vitality expressed through colorful melodic and rhythmic idioms of the southeast. Your spirit will soar when you hear favorites like “Come by Here, My Lord,” “Mary Had a Baby,” “Rock-a My Soul,” and the quintessential “We Shall Overcome.” The recording features the voices of the Uzee Brown Society of Choraliers, a chorus- in-residence at Morehouse College. This diverse group of both professional and amateur singers is committed to offering cultural enrichment for their local community and throughout the nation.
