Thread Name: Alabama Slave Spiritual Music
Subject: Alabama Slave Spiritual Music
I'm looking for Slave Spirituals that predate 1850 and particularly call-response type songs. Localized to Alabama would be even better. I'm also interested in Slave Spirituals that are versions of, or have their roots in, white church music of this or preceding eras. Anyone have any info?
