This collection is required reading for anyone interested in the development and current status of music in the African American church.

In one volume, it presents forty chapters, essays, articles and previously unpublished papers on music and worship, representing some of the greatest writings, musical comment and discourse, from W.E.B. DuBois in 1903 ("Of the Faith of our Fathers," from the SOULS OF BLACK FOLK) to Obery M. Hendricks Jr's "I Am the Holy Dope Dealer: The Problem with Gospel Music Today" written in 2000.

It's divided into 7 major categories: Historical Perspectives, Surveys of Hymnals and Hymnody, Liturgical Hymnody, Worship, Composers, the Organ, and Contemporary Perspectives. A wonderful college text or resource book!
