We received the following greeting from the late Moses Hogan(1957-2003), New Orleans, Louisiana:
GREETINGS FROM MOSES HOGAN
It is with great appreciation that I express my gratitude for your efforts to preserve the Negro Spiritual.
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Sam Edwards and Ms. Lyvonne Chrisman following our concert in San Francisco last year. Mr. Edwards and Ms. Chrisman revealed that they are indeed sincere individuals with an intense love and zeal for the preservation, promotion and exposure of the spiritual to our society.
It is my understanding that
The Friends of Negro
Spirituals organization is playing a significant role in the promotion of our return to the Greater Bay Area at Stanford University on November 19, 1999 and at the Herbst Theater on November 20, 1999.
On behalf of the membership of The Moses Hogan Chorale, we extend our heartfelt appreciation for your spirit of collaboration in this project. As you know, the Herbst concert represents the final concert of the Chorale.
Please know my commitment to the preservation of the spiritual is eternal and I will continue my work through my new organization, The Moses Hogan Vocal and Choral Society.
To know that my music inspired the formation of your organization is an honor above all honors, and I vow never to disappoint you.
