Niko Schlenker’s gospel songs have long been a source of inspiration and success for ambitious gospel choirs.
Passionate, contemporary compositions, which are at the same time easy to perform, convince choirmasters and singers alike.

Niko Schlenker’s music is particularly popular in workshop and concert choirs with instrumental accompaniment. The choral arrangements have been tried and tested many times and the carefully prepared sheet music has proved its worth. The arrangements usually manage with one male voice, soloists are provided. As a bonus, the collection contains an a cappella song in traditional spiritual style: “Awesome God”. A bass is provided as the fourth part.
Otherwise, the piano and choir form a grooving whole, with each song having its own special character.

The accompanying album with the “Angels” is absolutely worth listening to! With the solo voices of Deborah Woodson and James Smith, the recordings feature an absolute star cast.

These compositions contain everything that contemporary black gospel, contemporary rhythm and blues or danceable funk have to offer in terms of musical combinations, effects and finesse…. You immediately feel transported to one of the African-American churches.
(Musik & Kirche)

Wonderfully intricate arrangements, harmonically interesting and exciting passages, inspiring vamps.
A repertoire that can certainly compete with American compositions.

Modern and refreshingly new gospel songs in sophisticated arrangements… Convince through musical variety, inventiveness and depth of content.(Singen)
