Roland Hayes - Reginald Boardman - The Life of Christ in Spirituals - Part 2

Roland Hayes, arranger and tenor
Reginald Boardman, piano

This old classic recording doesn't seem to be available on CD.  Which is too bad. There are some spirituals that could have gone into it which Hayes recorded, one which the distinguished critic Richard Dyer called one of the greatest recorded examples of musical drama.  I'll post that later this week if I can find it.

Update:  Listening to it again,  not only was Hayes a great singer, Boardman was a great accompanist. One of the real great musical partnerships that made it into the high fidelity era.
