We can just see it now. Dissertations will be entitled, The Polyphony of Sweet Honey In The Rock, as presented in the year 1992. You would be better to enjoy this wonderful recording before the someone realizes that the creative spirit moving the women who have been the tributaries to the Sweet Honey institution has created something worthy of scholastic endeavor. No kidding. When five voices can sing different melodies and with them weave an overall tapestry of melody, something special is going on. For some reason this phenomena is particularly pronounced in this recording. Whether building to a belt it out crescendo as in the title track, delicately weaving an almost ethereal beauty as "Patchwork Quilt," or in the piece inspired by the Fulani people of Africa with its exotic feel, the interplay of voices is the real story of this magnificent music.
