Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir: Acappella-- Jubilation IV
Acappella fills my cup with inspired Spirituals, sung in a traditional style. “Lord I Know I’ve Been Changed” and “Deep River” highlight the performance differences between Chanticleer and MJGC that are analogous to the differences between the Glenn Miller and the Count Basie Orchestras. The MJGC uses all 45 of its voices to great effect, exuding a sincere dedication, praise and joy. The highlight of highlights is “I Ain’t got time to Die”, which sounds divinely propelled to its coda.
. The sound is full if not recorded a bit far away but this in no way takes away from this superb collection of Traditional Spirituals sung in the most appropriate fashion, acappella.
