Boys Choir of Harlem

The Boys Choir of Harlem Inc. is a world renowned performing arts and educational institution serving over 500 boys and girls. With the dual musical heritage of the European boys choir and the African-American church choir. BCH has an artistic repertoire ranging from classical music to jazz, contemporary songs, gospels, spirituals and specially commissioned works by leading African-American composers. Their program evolves directly from our mission and a vision of consistent, compassionate, communal strength in raising children. It builds on the African philosophy of "it takes a whole village to raise a child" combined with a commitment to "classical or character education" which instills basic values, stresses discipline, hard work, cooperation and goal oriented behavior and affects all aspects of children's lives. With music as the motivator and catalyst, we engage students in the educational process, open them up to learning, and provide the vehicle through which they are able to transfer the skills they learn through the arts -- higher order thinking, problem solving ability, perception, imagination and creativity -- to the mastery of other academic subjects and in the process they learn positive behaviors and attitudes, develop social abilities, and strengthen verbal and communication skills.


Precious Lord - Take My Hand

Everytime I Feel The Spirit
Go Down Moses
Children, Go Where I send Thee
Little David Play On Your Harp
Ride On, King Jesus
Ezekiel Saw De Wheel
I've Been Buked
If I Got My Ticket, Can I Ride
Mary Was the Queen of Galilee
Amazing Grace
I Can Tell The World
Precious World
Kumbaya My Lord
Oh Freedom

Harlem's finest, and one of America's finest boys' choirs, brings us a powerful collection of 14 authentic spirituals. The arrangements are by some of the best in the world. "Everytime I Feel the Spirit," "Go Down Moses," "Little David Play On Your Harp," "Ride On King Jesus" and "I Can Tell the World," all arranged by Moses Hogan, "Ezekiel Saw De Wheel," arranged by William Dawson, "If I Got My Ticket, Can I Ride," arranged by Robert Shaw, and a pair arranged by Howard Roberts, "Kumbaya My Lord" and "Oh Freedom," are a few of many favorites. Some light piano accompaniment, like on the lovely Don Sebesky-arranged "Amazing Grace," but mostly sweet, spirited a cappella. "Precious Lord" is inspirational and moving on many levels, given the accomplishments of Executive Producer J. Walter Turnbull and many others, molding and teaching the talented children of Harlem.

Listen to "Everytime I Feel The Spirit" in Real Audio.

Some light accompaniment. "God's by Design" is very nice collection by this spirited, talented Choir.
