for anthems and spirituals you must get james abbingtons new CD
« on: October 02, 2006, 06:19:10 PM »
James abbington put out a Cd called 49 treasures of the AFrican American hymnal
as its name suggests he has his choir singing songs right from the hymn book
he plays piano  hammon organ and pipe organ

the music is predominantly spirituals and anthems
but there are a few worship songs in this album as well

check out my review in the gospel piano room for more information on this album

but in general james abingoton is a great source for spirituals and anthenms 




The last site that val215 sent me was very helpful and moreover, I went upstairs in he music room At my new church and they have volumes of anthems and negro sprituals

a virtual gold mine of stuff

old old old from 1933 some of the stuff is really nice and kept well

o learned my first anthem today

they sound kind of folky and classical at the same time

I hope i can teach these seniors how to sing these songs on the beat with very strict adherence to time because if I dont htey will sound horrible.


once again thanks

to everyone

Try this CD:


Wade In The Water Vol. 1: African American Spirituals - The Concert Tradition CD


And, you could just try amazon.com or someplace like that. I'm sure you'll be able to find something.

For spirituals do a search on Moses Hogan, I'm not sure if you need CD's or sheet music but www.ntimemusic.com should have both of them.

I'm not too sure if this is what you're looking for, but I found this site that has anthems from all over the world. It has the actual sheet music, lyrics, midi, and audio. http://www.nationalanthems.info/ Hope that helps.

i cant even begin to tell you what an anthem is other then what i have already told you  but Guide me o Great Jehovah is an anthem  i have seen some anthems on a couple of sites but they sound more like worship music and that is not what i am looking for either i need those real old traditional anthems that the choirs used to sing back in the days in those sophisticated churches you know the cididdy chuches

Oh ok...I gotcha. In that case, you might want to check out the arrangements by William L. Dawson. Click this link to listen to the samples: http://www.kjos.com/choral/dawson_spirituals_sounds.htm

I looked through my old music and I do have the sheet music to "Ezekiah Saw De Wheel" it's like 15 pages long. I can send it to you some kind of way if you'd like. Just PM me if you're interested. I pray it's what you're looking for :)

James abbington has recorded many many spirituals
i think he is connected with the hampton conference

i plugged keep your lamps trimmed and burning and i saw the name and when I clicked on it i got about a good 40 or so songs

also you can get anthems from the hamponministers conference

i agree Moses Hogan is the best on spirituals. I have 2 of his books "Feel The Spirit" Volume One and Two. I was also fortunate to have been in a workshop choir that he conducted. He will be greatly missed.
