John Alexander Singers : Shenandoah: Songs of the American Spirit

Review: John Alexander takes the listener on a musical tour of American historical touchstones, celebrating the diverse folk culture of the United States, as well as the emotions and experiences of pioneer life. The John Alexander Singers, one of America's rising professional chamber choirs, captures the essence of the American spirit in this inspirational recording. The history of our country is written in our song, and what a variety of song it is! War songs, tunes from Appalachia, gospel-all have been mined over the years by composers and arrangers of every era. This recording offers a varied program of these American works, from the well known (Shenandoah, Buffalo Gals) to the less familiar, expertly arranged for choir and sung by this nationally acclaimed American choir.
