This is Chanticleer’s second disc of spirituals and gospel songs. The first was made in 1987 for their in-house label, and is considerably more refined than this newcomer. The singing on both is beautiful, to be sure; the all-male choir’s clear, bright tone is as finely blended as it would be in a Josquin Mass. But 15 years’ additional experience under Joseph Jennings’s watchful eye (and ear) has yielded greater rhythmic flexibility, a more natural spontaneity and increased intensity. Mind you, this is still gospel music dressed up in black tie and tails.
