Every now and again we’ll dig into the Refinersfire “vault” and pull out a classic recording to feature as a free download via SoundCloud. Be sure to check out all of our Music Releases at your favorite digital music store.
Last week I watched Steve McQueen’s brilliant and heart-wrenching adaptation of Solomon Northup’s memoir “Twelve Years a Slave”.
It was one of the best and hardest films I’ve watched in a long time. In honor of the African-American men, women, and children of the pre-Civil War United States, today’s Featured Release is the somber yet hopeful Negro Spiritual “Steal Away to Jesus.” It is arranged by Michael Linton with Kathleen Shimeta singing and Janet Linton at the piano.
