Feel the Spirit – An evening of spirituals and jazz by John Rutter & Bob Chilcott
Feel the Spirit – John Rutter
A cycle of seven spirituals, arranged for Mezzo-Soprano soloist, and mixed choir
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
I got a robe,
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child,
Ev’ry time I feel the spirit,
When the saints go marchin in.
A little jazz mass – Bob Chilcott
Composed for the 2004 Crescent City Choral Festival, New Orleans. Chilcott brings together two very diverse traditions – the Latin mass and the jazz idiom – in such an expressive and entirely unforced way, an achievement that has generally eluded other composers who have tried something similar.
