    "The Spiritual - Music and More"

    This interview offers an introduction to the African-American spiritual as a musical form. The dialogue between the host and Joe Carter is sprinkled with historical notes that provide the audience with information about the genesis of the music and its various uses.

    An important value added to this Audible selection was the accompanying music woven within the conversation. Mr. Carter's voice is melodic, robust and clear. The work was very easy to listen to as a result.

    The only enhancement I would like to suggest is that other voices are used along with Mr. Carter's to better capture the manner in which these songs are usually sung. For example, the call and response features of the music would be enriched if others voices came in. Under most situations, even when there is a soloist, the listeners will add their musical responses or oral punctuation. This is part of the form's specialness.

    Great for individuals interested in music history, sacred music and/or African-American music.
