It's Me, O Lord (Digital)

SKU: JP 405 $4.75
Written for bass-baritone Benjamin Matthews, this syncopated spiritual based on a pentatonic scale utilizes call and response and a static harmony to reflect the somber emotion of the singer. Sudden outbursts in a higher register accompanied by jazz chords punctuate the building emotion of the singer culminating with a florid accompaniment on Hallelujah. This piece is best suited for low voices, moderately difficult and requires dramatic intensity.
