Composer: R. Nathaniel Dett
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

Listen To The Lambs was written in 1914, drawing its text from an older spiritual song, I Want To Go To Heaven When I Die. It is arranged for eight-part mixed chorus, and is known for the way it cleverly mixes passages of partial and full choir, and thick and thin textures, to create a poignant and moving work.

Robert Nathaniel Dett (1882-1943) was an African-American Canadian composer and singer, who fused together European classical styles with Negro spirituals and was comfortable with a wide range of repertoire. In 1914 he was working with the choir at the Hampton Institute in Hampton, Virginia.
