Paul John Rudoi's arrangement of Yonder Come Day deepens the traditional Georgia Sea Islands tune with a narrative journey. Through other well known spirituals, including Hush, Hush, Somebody's Calling My Name, Steal Away, and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, we move forward and upward, hoping for a better day. Infectious fun for the singers and the audience. Duration: 3:30

Part of the National Collegiate Choral Organization Choral Series/NCCO Series.


My professional men's group, BealeCanto, is performing this work this spring. The men love it- it is tastefully and skillfully written; lies well for the voice, is accessible for high school men's groups, yet has enough challenge in it for college groups, community groups and the like. It contains a nice assortment of songs (Yonder Come Day; Hush, Hush, Somebody's Callin' My name; Steal Away; returns to Yonder Come Day); has a nice tenor solo, provides a nice variety in the tunes yet flows very well. It is beautifully threaded together, and makes sense artistically. It is an audience pleaser, and fun to sing. In short, I highly recommend it, and the men from BealeCanto would as well.
-Dr. William Skoog, Director of BealeCanto

I became acquainted with Paul's piece when it won the NCCO composition competition last year. I purchased copies for my collegiate men's chorus at the University of Virginia, and we took it on tour to Argentina. It was the audience favorite at every concert, with cheers, standing ovations, and shouts of "encore" following every performance. It's proved equally popular with our audiences back in the US, so I highly recommend it!
-Frank Albinder, Director of the University of Virginia Men’s Glee Club
