From the Music of Black Composers Series is early 20th century Canadian-American composer, conductor and pianist Robert Nathaniel Dett's  Two Spirituals including Music in the Mine and Let Us Cheer the Weary Traveler that combine his neo-romantic style and advocacy for spirituals in this engaging arrangement for a brass quintet of two B-flat trumpets, horn in F, trombone and tuba. Music in the Mine provides a musical interpretation of the back-breaking and mind-numbing mining work in the steady accompaniment along with the dialogue of two miners yearning for better days, while Let Us Cheer the Weary Travelers is an upbeat dedication to our spiritual journey.   As Director of the Hampton Institute, Dett developed the college's choir with his compositions and conducting into one of the leading choirs in the nation.  Always looking to improve his compositional capabilities, Dett studied with notable teachers such as composer Arthur Foote at Harvard, was the first African-American to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Oberlin Conservatory in composition and piano in 1908 and awarded an Honorary Masters Degree in 1932 from the Eastman School of Music . The recording is of the entire edition.

"The Music of Black Composers Series is a welcome and timely addition to the brass repertoire. Interesting music, expertly arranged, fun to perform, and well received by audiences. These pieces are now permanently in my quintet book along with the usual Joplin and Waller, and I will be using them with my student groups as well. Highly recommended!” Wesley Nance, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Eastman School of Music
