The call and response spiritual JACOB’S LADDER has long been a popular folk hymn found in both worship and concert settings. Here, composer Brandon Boyd sets the work for mixed choir and piano in an energetic gospel style. The middle section provides a lyrical contrast calling on the tune IS THERE ANYBODY HERE. Try the piece during American Music Month, Black History Month, or even World Communion Sunday. This is a marvelous addition to the ANDRE THOMAS CHORAL SERIES.
