Gloria Pinkney grew up with the tradition of churchgoing, but she was a reluctant soloist until the Holy Spirit of the Lord strengthened her confidence. Her most recent publication is an inspirational book titled In the Forest of Your Remembrance.From School Library Journal:
PreS Up–This superb collection of lyrics for 22 African-American spirituals (musical scores are not included) is divided into three thematic groups: Adoration, Spiritual Wayfarers, and The Good Shepherd. The finely crafted volume contains a variety of favorites, including Glory, Glory, Hallelujah! We Are Climbing Jacob's Ladder, and Go, Tell It on the Mountain. The selections are accompanied by pertinent lines from corresponding psalms and further illuminated by distinctive illustrations painted in swirling shades of blue and gold, or poignant color photographs of children. The songs are framed by essays written by Troy Pinkney-Ragsdale and Gloria Pinkney, both of whom speak eloquently of the magical influence music can have on adults and children. Gloria Pinkney sings the songs in her pleasant alto to piano accompaniment on a companion CD. This title can be paired with Ashley Bryan's All Night, All Day (S & S, 2003), another collection of African-American spirituals, which includes the musical scores in addition to the lyrics.–Linda L.
