CD Reviews

Subtle, yet powerful performance
Thomas H. Moody | Nobleboro, ME United States | 04/08/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Opera singers performing spirituals often tend to deliver them in an overblown and exagerated manner. Not so here. The simple, yet stirring approach taken on these performances is something that's been needed for a long time to validate the role of the classical singer in engaging themselves in spirituals. Hendricks is superb here - never sounding better. The participation of the Moses Hogan Singers is a stroke of genius as is the lack of any instrumental obtrusion. The range of material here is very generous - from the uptempo to the truly sorrowful. The heartbreaking, yet ultimately exhilerating performance of "Steal Away" is worth the price of the disc alone. This recording should not be passed up!"
Best Spritual composer

"Moses Hogans arrangements of many of his Spirituals are inspiring, fun to sing, and have a certain je ne sais quoi about them that I have yet to hear from another spiritual composer. His music is grand and powerful, and the Moses Hogan Chorale has a beautiful resonant sound with talented soulful singers. The moses hogan chorale will send shivers down your spine, and I recommend this CD, or any Cd with his chorale performing to people who enjoy acapella music"
