Arrangements for Spirituals with New Energy & Power
“I discovered my love of spirituals at a young age, and since I’ve become an adult I realize that setting them for choirs is in my DNA.” – Stacey V. Gibbs
The outstanding works of my friend and mentor Stacey V. Gibbs have been a consistent presence in my programming over the last decade. His quality compositions and arrangements have brought him national and international acclaim and his collaborations and commissions by The King’s Singers and other outstanding ensembles speaks to the deep respect the choral community has for him as a person and an artist.

“Stacey Gibbs music honors the past, embraces the present, and inspires the future of choral music. His thoughtful, creative and humble character is directly reflected in his music and is a main reason why it is so well respected and loved throughout the world. I can say without a doubt that Stacey Gibbs is one of America’s great musical talents of the 21st century.”
Dr. Lee Nelson
Stacey is a masterful composer. What’s struck me most about working with him is his instinctive understanding of harmony. There is a lusciousness in his writing that’s stylish, transformative and yet totally uncontrived, which is a rare gift. He’s also brilliant at writing for voices. It takes someone with real skill to understand how to contour individual lines and phrases in a way that both sounds natural to listeners and also feels effortless to singers, but Stacey always delivers music that achieves both. He is a complete joy to work with, and I’m so grateful to have developed such a positive working relationship and friendship with him. I hope it continues long into the future.
