If you don’t already know the glorious voice of Indra Thomas and you love Spirituals and big wonderful open heated singing you’re in for a treat. Ms Thomas may be the best kept opera secret in America… This is one of those CDs that improves with each listening. As the daughter of a baptist minister she has all the instincts for this music. She knows how to project joy, drama, sorrow, humor and has a real smile in her voice at the right times all balanced with musician’s head and a singers heart. Out of many choice moments: see if you don’t get your heart strings tugged listening to “Steal Away”. These are some of the finest performances of these songs for me since the heydays of Shirley Verrett and Leontyne Price.”
“Armfelt rates it Five Stars!
A remarkable recording! Indra Thomas has a glorious voice: stunningly expressive and profoundly musical. This recording is an absolute must for anyone who loves and values Spirituals.”
Listen for yourself and you’ll agree!
