  Spirituals Backing Tracks

Spirituals were often expressions of religious faith, although they may also have served as socio-political protests veiled as assimilation to white, American culture. Because they were unable to express themselves freely in ways that were spiritually meaningful to them, enslaved Africans often held secret religious services. It was there also that enslaved Africans further crafted the impromptu musical expression of field songs into the so-called "line signing" and intricate, multi-part harmonies of struggle and overcoming, faith, forbearance and hope that have come to be known as "Spirituals."

Over My Head
Christian > Spirituals
Download Price: $4.59  (includes accompaniment backing track)
Sometimes called "Up Over My Head", this simple, powerful gospel tune was made famous by Sister Rosetta Tharpe. During the civil rights era it became a protest song by substituting the words "freedom" and "justice" for "music". This traditional gospel arrangement featuring piano and church organ is perfect for a soloist, a choir, or both! Choirs behind a soloist can echo the first three lines of each verse immediately after the soloist for instant easy harmony, and sing the last line with the soloist in unison. Verse four goes up a whole step for dramatic effect, and slows down at the end for a big finish.
