Afro-American Suite
Composed by Undine Smith Moore (1904-1989)
For Flute/Alto Flute, Cello, and Piano
Published by International Opus
Includes score and parts

Dr. Moore was one of the most prominent African-American women composers of the 20th Century. Published here for the first time, her Afro-American Suite (1969) has four movements based on traditional Negro spirituals, but adapted harmonically using the modern composer's tools. A very accessible chamber music piece for instrumental voices, well suited for recitals or church. (The third movement is written for alto flute).

Contents:
1. Nobody Knows the Trouble I see, Lord; Brothers Will You Pray for Me and Help Me Drive Ole Satan Away
2. I Heard the Preaching of the Elder, Preaching the Word of God
3. Who is that Yonder? Oh, It Looks Like My Lord, Coming in a Cloud (alto flute)
4. Shout All Over God's Heaven
