About

This recording is, in many respects, a unique and creatively conceived kaleidoscope of American culture presented through the expressions and influences of African Americans.

Oral Moses and Rosalyn Floyd offer exceptionally convincing interpretations of each song, with clear understanding of the nature and unique message contained in each.

The diverse genres, art songs by African American composers and artful settings of spirituals, also include works written by other Americans who use idiomatically African American musical resources, and whose creative energies have been powerfully influenced by African American folk life.

This is a delightful tapestry of works that comprise a cross section of musical personalities and compelling lyrical content.
