  • August 09, 2007 12/8 - G/Ab - Med. (mm=100) Gospel Swing

    This was in the music packet I was given at a recent Hal Leonard Choral reading seminar. Rollo Dilworth was there and he ably led the 100 or so Choir directors through some of his other arrangements as well as several others'. The choral parts here don't seem too...

    hard (aside from the rhythmic unfamilarity singers may have with 12/8 swing) and the voice-leading seems to be standard, rather than the close harmony one often hears in mass Gospel choirs. IMO the music needs Chord Symbols for Guitar/Bass. Also there seems to be some typos where the piano part clashes briefly with the choral harmonies. You could say this is part of the style, but I don't know. Perhaps since this is a new arrangement that could be corrected in future editions. Also a standard Db/Eb key change into Ab and NO VAMP at the end! But overall a good effort in bringing a Gospel sound to mainstream choirs....
