Mary Had a Baby | James McCullough

Three variants of this spiritual tune are set for Tenor Solo and unaccompanied SATB chorus. The form re?ects a question-and-answer response structure, so commonly used in African American spirituals. However, the overall musical structure of this work is strophic in its melodic design. Mostly homophonic with approachable choral writing, this is a fresh and useful setting. Duration: 1:30
