These new compilations, Dawson Spirituals, Volume One, , features six favorites for Mixed Chorus (SATB) that have been carefully re-engraved to feature clean and clear notation. Not only do they provide tremendous readibility and clariety, but they remain historically relevant.

Volume One includes the following works: Ain'-a That Good News, Hail Mary!, Steal Away, In His Care-O, Mary Had a Baby, and Ezekiel Saw de Wheel.
