Continuum: The First Songbook of Sweet Honey in the Rock (Collection)

(ed. Barnwell)

Sweet Honey in the Rock's musical sound has been described in High Fidelity magazine as “breathtaking excursions into harmony singing” and in Down Beat as “neck-hair raising”. This six-member African-American a cappella women's group has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. This wonderful collection compiled and edited by Ysaye M. Barnwell features three original compositions and one traditional song arrangement by each of the five singing members. The songs are presented in choral score for easy use by vocal ensembles. Also includes a moving foreword by Harry Belafonte, an introduction by Horace Clarence Boyer, the group's “Her-story,” a discography with album covers, photos, and extensive composer's and performance notes. Available: SATB divisi a cappella. Also available: “Singing in the African-American Tradition” taught by Ysaye M. Barnwell with George Brandon.
