Album Notes
Fred and Marie Gaertner are a husband-wife team of composers and music dramatists. Fred also writes the novels upon which their music dramas are based. Their goals are to inspire, entertain, inform and uplift. The subplot of Fred's first novel, Six Days Till Sunday published by Xlibris, tells the story of negroes enslaved in America's Southland of 1855. The songs, taken from this subplot, describe some of the activities that the slaves experienced to help them endure their crual life of bondage. Throughout these songs was a profound hope that some day all negroes would be liberated , as they sang their way to freedom.
