Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The Suite in the Old Style, Op 28 alludes to the rich mother lode of African-American spirituals and Gospel music through the structural contours of a Bach French Suite or Partita, with each movement corresponding in texture, tempo, and hierarchy of repeats to its precise baroque counterpart.
