St. Paul, Minn. — For nine years, Carol Barnett served as composer-in-residence for the Dale Warland Singers. During that time, Barnett crafted glorious (and deliciously quirky) arrangements of American spirituals and folk songs along with original works.

Going back into the Warland Singers archive at Classical MPR, this week's Regional Spotlight features three Carol Barnett classics:

By and By (traditional spiritual)

The Last Invocation

McKay (traditional American hymn tune)
