Quick Overview

A frequent collaborator with poet Langston Hughes and one of the first black women to break into the world of classical composition and performance, Margaret Bonds studied with Roy Harris at Juilliard and worked as a composer and educator until her unexpected death in 1972. Theodore Presser Company is honored to present In His Hand, a collection of Bonds' arrangements of well-known spirituals, especially featuring the version of “He's Got the Whole World in His Hand” that pioneering black American opera soprano Leontyne Price was fond of singing at her orchestra concerts in the 1950s and 1960s.
