Dedicated to Eveline Kuhn and Arash Amini, this work follows in the fashion of Gerber's earlier work "Spirituals" for strings, with or without clarinet solo. Rather than being simple arrangements, this is a collection of short but strikingly original and stylized fantasias based on well-known spirituals. Movement titles:I.  Simple Variations ("My Lord, What a Morning")
II.  Octatonic Scherzo ("Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho")
III.  Three Choruses ("John Henry")
IV.  Sequences I ("Swing Low, Seet Chariot")
V.  Major/Minor ("Roll, Jordan, Roll")
VI.  Sequences II ("Do Lord")
VII.  Kinda Bluesish ("When the Saints Go Marching In")
VIII.  Crescendi and Diminuendi ("It's Me, Lord")
IX.  Recitatives and Arias ("Follow the Drinking Gourd")
