RCA's Spiritualsa release by the legendary contralto, is a reissue of a album, with the addition of nine earlier recordings.
It is an excellent compilation of 30 spirituals which displays the rich, expressive, dignified voice of the great Marian Anderson. Usually accompanied only by her longtime pianist Franz Ruppthe album is a showcase for the varied emotions and conditions that these songs express. Anderson was capable of singing with great sorrow, expressing so well in the lower range of her voice, as in "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child.
It is a tribute to her gift that, although Anderson was trained as an opera singer, she never lets technique get in the way of expressing the deep, heartfelt feelings that are so basic to gospel singing. Although one could spend much time analyzing her vocal technique, the success of the recording is in large part due to the supportive piano accompaniment of Franz Rupp.
Never overpowering, he almost always hits the right combination of technique and emotion to complement Anderson 's singing. The near perfect pairing of singer and musician, and the many standards presented here make this album a basic addition to any gospel collection.
