Combining a jazz trio with gospel music, composer Frederick Tillis wrote an irrepressible work for the Atlanta Symphony and Chorus in 1985. The Spellman College and Morehouse College Glee Clubs join the Atlanta Symphony in a chorus from that work: "Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit." Robert Spano is conducting.
