African American Heritage Hymnal

575 Hymns, Spirituals, and Gospel Songs
  • By Delores Carpenter
$22.79
($31.95)
Product Description
Eight years of inspired work by a committee of more than 30 musicians and pastors, all leaders in African American worship and gospel music, have resulted in this compendium representing the common repertoire of African American churches across the United States.

For the first time in an African American hymnal, traditional hymns and songs are notated to reflect performance practices found in the oral tradition of the black church in America.
 
At a time when such traditions are falling victim to modern technology, this book strives to preserve this rich heritage for future generations.
 
Presented are litanies for "Fifty-Two Sundays of Worshipful Celebration" outlining an African American church year, including such special days as Martin Luther King Sunday, Elders' Day, Mother's Day, and Men's Day.
 
Also included are 52 responsive scripture readings from the Old and New Testaments and an extensive index that includes scriptural and thematic cross-references.
