In Their Own Words
Slave Life and the Power of Spirituals
Eileen Guenther
This groundbreaking study of slavery and spirituals is the first to place the unique voices
of an enslaved people squarely within the context of their daily lives. Dr. Guenther’s
deeply researched account weaves a succinct history of “America’s original sin” into an
examination of the role of singing and religion in slave life and directly correlates slave
testimonies—in their own words—to the themes of Spirituals. In addition to surveying
the musical styles, performance practices, and melodic and rhythmic characteristics of
spirituals, In Their Own Words includes a biblical concordance to 100 of the spirituals
most frequently sung. Paperback.

Ralph M. Johnson
Ave Maria
SATB, Soprano Saxophone, and Piano
Guided by the arresting text of Laurie Richardson
Johnson, a truly unique anthem has been created. The
steady eighth-note accompaniment simulates running

A soothing anthem that exemplifies its message of
peace. The violin (with oboe and clarinet substitutes)

Chorale of Central Minnesota, this work is a perfect
choice to highlight the youth choir during the Christmas season, though

NEW CHORAL MUSIC FROM AUREOLE EDITIONS AND LAURENDALE ASSOCIATES
O Trinity of Blessed Light
Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace)
Christmas Eve Is Here
SATB and Organ
John Ebenezer West (1863–1929) was a prolific
English composer and editor with over 500 published
pieces to his name. This new edition of his evening
anthem features soaring choral lines and a masterful
use of the organ. The English text is a translation
based on O lux beatas Trinitas, attributed to St.
Ambrose.
Moderately Easy
SATB and Piano
Quiet and introspective based on the Latin phrase in
the Agnus Dei section of the Roman Catholic Mass.
SATB and Piano
The mood of this piece ranges from subdued and
reflective to one of joy and celebration as the ringing
of the bells on Christmas day signals the hope for
peace and goodwill to all men.

Variations on Veni Creator Spiritus

The second entry in our new Chenault Organ Duo series,
this is a commanding set of
variations on the plainchant
tune. Expertly crafted, it is
challenging and rewarding
for two capable players at
one console. This theme
and eight variations have
delighted the audiences of
Raymond and Beth Chenault
time and time again.
Moderately Difficult
An elegant, lyrical duet
in which the writing allows both instruments
to do what they do
best. Based on entirely
original material, this
piece is suitable for
worship and/or concert
settings. In addition, a
harp part is available
for complimentary
download which replaces the piano part, further
expanding the usefulness of this lovely piece.
Moderately Easy
The Overture, Bourée, The Peace, The Rejoicing,
and Minuet movements are transcribed
for organ and piano
duet. Requiring two secure players, the result
is classy fun for both
players and listeners
alike. Useful for festival
worship services and
recitals.

Elgar’s Sospiri (“sighs”) was originally a companion

this Adagio movement retains its lovely brooding
quality. Part of our Nigel Potts Transcription Series, this
classic is suitable for recitals and perhaps a memorial
service. Optional Harp part included.

Originally part of three pieces for cello and piano,

Fanfare and Processional
Tambourine
Fanfare and Processional may be played for any
festive occasion with the procession of people,
such as wedding or graduation ceremonies. The
fanfare section is suited for a bridge leading from
the accompaniment of one part of the procession
to a more grand entrance for the bride, for example.
The many possibilities make this a useful and fun
composition for you to own.
Medium
A delightful original piece, which reflects the
Provençal dance of the same name. Such dances
usually had a piped melody over a drone bass (tabor),
