"Lineage" by Andrea Ramsey was commissioned by Sister Singers Network for the 2014 Sister Singers Network National Women's Choral Festival. Copyright (c) 2014
The 2014 festival was hosted by Amasong, Champaign-Urbana's Premier Lesbian Feminist Chorus, and the theme was "Returning to Our Roots"--perfect for the text of the Margaret Walker poem that is the lyric for this song. This performance, directed by Meredith Bowen (of Sistrum: Lansing Michigan's Women's Chorus), is of the Prairie Chorus, one of the two mass choruses that performed the world premiere of the piece at the University of Illinois Krannert Center for the Performing Arts' Tryon Festival Theatre.
Sheet music will be published as part of Doreen Rao's "Choral Music Experience" line of music with Boosey & Hawkes, distributed by Hal Leonard.
