Spirit Suites

About this music:

These suites of three well-loved spirituals each feature SATB choir, soprano or tenor soloist and optional orchestra. Hayes has pulled out all the stops in these fresh treatments of classic spirituals. Each arrangement works well with piano only but can also be performed with full or chamber orchestra. The suites are well suited for church, community and school choirs, and professional choruses. The solo parts are demanding, but worth the effort for a well-trained singer. Each selection can be performed separately or as a group for a more dramatic presentation.
