Product Description

Feel the Spirit is an arrangement of four pre-Civil War spirituals which were sung by slaves in America. These were Christian songs which described Bible stories (“Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho”) or about living with the spirit of God (“Every Time I Feel the Spirit”). Sometimes the spirituals described the hardships of slavery (“Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen”). Most interestingly, some spirituals had hidden meanings. In “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” it appears that the singer is talking about dying and going to heaven, but in actuality, “home” refers to a place of freedom, and crossing the river Jordan means overcoming the obstacles to freedom.
