Composed by William Dawson


The beloved spiritual arrangements and original compositions of William L. Dawson have been celebrated by choirs and audiences since they were first published, and have become among the most widely performed choral works for concert, contest, and festival settings.

These new compilations, Dawson Spirituals, Volume Two,  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 Two includes the following works: Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit; I Wan' To Be Ready; Swing Low, Sweet Chariot; Soon Ah Will Be Done; There Is a Balm in Gilead; and Behold the Star.
