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.
