Notes and Editorial Reviews

In Carry Me Home - The Story & Music of The Nathaniel Dett Chorale, filmmakers Liam Romalis and Gerald Packer create a Gemini award-winning portrait capturing conduvter Brainerd Blyden-Taylor and his extrordinary 20-member Chorale. This acclaimed ensemble brings fire and energy to some of R. Nathaniel Dett's most inspirational works, along with the music of other famed Afro/American composers.

Through interviews with such luminaries as jazz pianist and educator Ellis Marsalis, the late conductor and composer Moses Hogan, Grammy-winning musicologist, Rob Bowman, and Canadian singer Mary Lou Fallis, the film provides insight on Dett's pathbreaking compositions and his influence on black music in North America.
