Triumphant comments on their Carnegie Hall concert
Triumphant Quartet issued a press release with their take on their recent concert in Carnegie Hall:
American Gospel Music is a new emerging genre within the fabric of American musical culture. American Gospel Music brings together the very best of traditional southern gospel, black gospel, and contemporary gospel.
The selections and groups chosen for the performance at Carnegie Hall, New York City, New York on Friday evening November 23, 2007 are reflective of the total scope of American Gospel Music. Babbie Mason gave voice to sounds within the Black-gospel heritage. The contemporary voice was heard from The Imperials.
Traditional Southern Gospel was voiced by the TRIUMPHANT QUARTET representing the traditional sounds in such selections as “When Morning Sweeps the Eastern Sky” “Rock Bottom” “Delivered Again” and “The Great I Am Still Is” “Terrible Time/Wonderful Time” The Quartet is comprised of five gentlemen who are very experienced in singing gospel harmony. Eric Bennett, Jeff Stice, David Sutton, Clayton Inman, & Scott Inman
Jeff Stice brought the audience to their feet, playing his own arrangement of the traditional song “Joshua Fit the Battle” along with The American Festival Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the dynamic world renowned maestro Eric Dale Knapp.
Mr. Knapp will lead the Olympic Festival Orchestra and Chorus in a concert July 2008 in Beijing Olympics
Jeff Stice accompanied Babbie Mason and the 200 voice choir on many of the selections.
Triumphant joined with Babbie Mason & the Imperials on the opening number “Come on Into the House” and the Finale “Jerusalem”
Triumphant Quartet was much honored to be a part of this magnificent concert at Carnegie Hall. We wish to thank Christian Music Presenters Nashville, TN for all the labor that went into this past week, and in making the concert at Carnegie Hall a great success.
