Gospel music, a pillar of Americana, continues to grow in its popularity both here and abroad. From its humble roots in the early 1900's to today's highly stylized iterations, it has captured the attention of many of the world's greatest musicians. However, I believe that the real beauty and magic of gospel music lies in its ability to comfort in times of sorrow; strengthen in times of weakness; celebrate in times of joy; and minister in times of spiritual need.

These messages are precisely what the New England Gospel Ensemble tries to impart through its repertoire and performances. We share them and hope that each person will experience the love that we have for each other and for the music. We know that there is a message for everyone.
