William Grant Still
The Music of William Grant Still Lift Every Voice and Sing, Suite for Violin and Piano, Songs of Separation, Incantation and Dance, Here's One, Summerland, Citadel, Song for the Lonely, Out of the Silence, Ennanga Videmus William Grant Still has often been termed the patriarchal figure in Black music and was the first African-American composer to secure extensive publication and significant performances. His works represent the culmination of of musical aspirations of the Harlem Renaissance, in that they elevated “folkloric” materials. This collection includes several of his most important chamber compositions, among them Songs of Separation and Lift Every Voice and Sing. The latter was composed as a patriotic song for a Lincoln commemoration in 1899. It was quickly accepted as an anthem by African-Americans and has been arranged by many composers; this beautiful setting by Still, however, is not widely known.
