The Earl Nelson Singers

"...The Beauty and Dignity of the Negro Spiritual,
...Unaltered to Posterity!"

The Earl Nelson Singers Company is an integrated ensemble of singers from the Lansing, Michigan area, and are dedicated to collect and perform only those arrangements that tend to capture the original mood, style, and character of the sacred song of the slave. The group's repertoire also includes some songs representative of the early "gospel" style which typified the urbanized church songs of descendants of ex-slaves after the Civil War in America's history.
