Six Degree Singers are proud to present our Winter concert series, Choral Inspirations, a program that draws from the choral music that inspired our members in their formative years and encouraged them to continue singing today. From Billy Joel to Eric Whitacre, Renaissance to Harry Potter, and everything in between. There's something for everyone in this program so be sure to pick up your tickets here today! Remember shows are free for youth 18 and under!

My Soul's Been Anchored in the Lord - Traditional Spiritual, arr. Carol Barnett

Notes: Carol Barnett was composer-in-residence for the Dale Warland Singers from 1991– 2001 and they commissioned My soul’s been anchored in the Lord in 2001. This challenging arrangement of a traditional African-American spiritual features 8-part divisi and complex syncopated rhythms, which energize the piece, but also sometimes make it difficult to feel the beat, creating an conflicting “unanchored” feeling to “my soul’s been anchored in the Lord.” In the end, though, the choir finds their anchor, leading to an energetic close to the piece.
