You are here: / / Music for Black History Month
I am searching for music by black composers in genres other than spirituals and gospel, i.e. motets, anthems, etc. Thank you.
George Walker has some psalm settings, but they probably take too much rehearsal time if you were thinking about pulling them together for this year.
Florence Price wrote some nice pieces for chorus as well that might be more within reach in time for this year. “Praise the Lord” https://youtu.be/VeII8qlvGSk
Andre Thomas writes extensively for chorus and has a lot of manageable pieces for younger and less experienced singers. “Hold Fast to Dreams” https://youtu.be/N1R41BsIvzE
William Grant Still “All That I Am” https://youtu.be/RER2TEAbolA
Samuel Coleridge-Taylor “Summer Is Gone” https://youtu.be/qLqi5pwbusU
Margaret Bonds “The Negro Speaks of Rivers” https://youtu.be/GI7HcoHrN2U
