I want to hear him say, servant, well done. I want to join that heavenly choir and that sweet home by, by, by and by. I'm going to press on for the day. Yes, surely will come, yes, my Lord. I know the day But even in a conservative genre like gospel, change was on its way. And in it, the rhythm has been taken over by instruments, freeing up the voices for improvisation. And The Silvertones could definitely improvise.
Check the ending of "The Lord's Prayer. WARD: The classic version of The Silvertones, with Reverend Claude Jeter as lead singer, broke up in though because they were old-fashioned and not bringing in the crowds.
By then, the black church, one of the most conservative institutions in the country, was being forced to hear younger people like Martin Luther King, Jr.
An early follower of King was a guitar-playing patriarch of a family gospel group, Roebuck Pops Staples, who'd grown up among Delta bluesmen in Mississippi and moved his family to Chicago in the late s. In AprilFlossie - Various - We Are The Music Makers! (Preserving The Soul Of Americas Music) (CD), the family appeared Flossie - Various - We Are The Music Makers!
(Preserving The Soul Of Americas Music) (CD) a Friday-night service of the Flossie - Various - We Are The Music Makers! (Preserving The Soul Of Americas Music) (CD) Nazareth Church, their home church, to share some songs about the freedom struggle, not a universally popular topic with the congregation.
The Staples had just signed with Epic, a major label, and they decided to record the show. The result, an album called "Freedom Highway," has been impossible to find until this year, when Epic reissued it for the 50th anniversary of the march on Selma. I know some of you know about that. That was in March of Flossie - Various - We Are The Music Makers!
(Preserving The Soul Of Americas Music) (CD) from that march, words were revealed, and a song was composed. And we wrote a song about the freedom marchers. And we call it the "Freedom Highway. The first theme is bars long and the second follows it. The composer inverts his name in this fragment which breaks off as he is beginning the combination of all three themes. He evidently had time for nothing else. Yet, blind and on his deathbed, Bach dictated to his son-in-law Altnikol a chorale which was appended as a portion of it to the first edition of "The Art of Fugue.
It emanates a radiance suggesting the ascent of the purified consciousness to the source from which it has come into our world. And it is significant that the unfinished final fugue would have had a working out of the inversion of the BACH theme, suggesting St. Paul's admonition: "Put off the old man and put on the new man. Bach's music is full of a mystical element that lifts it above run-of-the-mill studies in counterpoint.
In his most sublime compositions the structure was meant to be hidden, much as are the steel girders in modern buildings. The music was more than the scaffolding, as Pablo Casals tried to prove many years ago when he performed the whole of the unaccompanied cello suites in albums of recordings. In this way, he said, he hoped to rescue Bach from the pedants. The composer's inspirations must have come from his devotion to certain religious currents of his day, especially the writings and published sermons of Johannes Tauler.
This 14th century German mystic, with Meister Eckhart, was a leading spirit of the Friends of God, a movement of clerics and laymen who stressed the "love of God" and ethical aspects of the Christian life over the merely dogmatic. Practical mystics, they transmitted concepts derived from sources far back, such as those of Origen, the early Church Father, and other figures standing up through the Dark and early Middle Ages of Europe like mountain peaks through the clouds.
The doctrine of the birth of an infant Christos element in the soul of every human being was of great importance to Tauler, as it was to Eckhart and the much later Cambridge Platonists. For them, the soul is a microcosm of the macrocosm in which all live, move and are sustained. Flossie - Various - We Are The Music Makers! (Preserving The Soul Of Americas Music) (CD) viewed the human being as compounded of an animal or material aspect, a rational nature and an essential, godlike man.
The writings of Richard of St. Victor were the joy of Tauler, and their influence might have affected Bach strongly, for the following utterance of Richard is the very heart of the music and particularly, it can be suggested, of "The Art of Fugue":.
Music is a subtle, suggestive medium of communication, inevitably open to many interpretations depending upon the interpreters, their thought patterns and cultural heritage. Profoundly devotional natures, whatever their backgrounds, would be bound to "tune in" upon the music of the spheres, and experience deep within themselves the moving contact of the outer self with the inner soul or spirit. Music itself does not know the barriers built into the many languages and dialects we have.
