An Introduction to Gospel Song

From the Fisk Jubilee Singers' restrained vocal arrangements of spirituals to the jazz-influenced music of the "Happy I Am" Choir, gospel music may have changed its trappings, but the heart of the music remains. This collection includes songs and sermons from 1913 to 1954.
