Although the publisher information lists the 2 songs quoted as 2 "traditional spirituals," the song "Amen" is not a spiritual but the work of the composer Jester Hairston. Despite this error, this piece is a very effective and fun piece of music for the experienced choir. The part-writing is very interesting and will pose a challenge to many, but it will be definitely worth the effort. Instrumental parts for rhythm section plus synthesized instruments or for a full orchestra make this piece a flexible addition to add some energy to any programming plan. This piece is full of fun with a heaping serving of choral integrity.
