  Sweet Honey in the Rock

The pre-eminent African-American acappella group have been delivering their messages of love and struggle for 30 years through stirring acappella vocals and moving lyrics. Their brilliant 30th Anniversary album The Women Gather is now available. It is no simple retrospective but with new compositions it takes us forward to face the present and challenge the future.

Sweet Honey have just completed their tour of the UK this summer 2003 to acclaim.

The full range of Sweet Honey's work is available from WRPM with every recording still in print from the 30 years, including their music for and with children. The children's music section has their unique cds, tapes and video, all on special offer!

Includes a song chosen by the sign-interpreter.

Harry Belafonte in his Foreward says: "These songs of Sweet Honey in the Rock draw upon sterner stuff.....their poetry awakens the stilled heart and sparks the mind to things and thoughts that give purpose. Their melodies make the soul sing".
A unique publication to use and treasure over the years. To see the titles of the songs in the book see View Tracks but please notes these are scores, not recordings.170pp.
