Detail

Description

Based on four Spiritual songs;

In 1968, the composer Frederick Tillis deliberately adopted a compositional style rooted in the thematic and harmonic materials of the spiritual. His recording of chamber works on New World Records provide examples of Tillis's use of the spiritual in intimate settings for chorus, string quartet, and solo song with piano.

The major work Spiritual Fantasy No. 12 (Suite for String Quartet), is a quartet of spirituals written in 1995. The composer has written of this work, “The composition of the Spiritual Fantasy for String Quartet pays tribute to the essence of the musical expressions of pathos and triumph over worldly obstacles encountered by a people who found hope and strength through faith in God.”
