This legendary institution topped the Billboard classical music charts with its collection of American folk hymns and spirituals. Pulled largely from the southern gospel and sacred harp song book, the set contains powerful full-choir renditions of "Down to the River and Pray," "Old Time Religion," and "Bound for the Promised Land," among others. Performed live in concert, these songs erupt with a joyful noise, yet also contain a delicate beauty that illuminates the choir's stunning talent.
