Thread Name: Gospel Origin-Civil Rights & Labor Songs
Subject: RE: Gospel Origin-Civil Rights & Labor Songs
One that I don't see here that I would say qualifies (though I'm not sure what your definition of Gospel is) is "Hold the Fort". Both the Christian and the Labor versions are in the DT, with a melody MIDI; a fuller, faster MIDI provides the background music at The Cyber Hymnal's version, which also has a page on Bliss, author of the Christian text and composer of the tune. Incidentally The Cyber Hymnal has yet another new URL (the last one, tch.wordnic.com, automatically rolls over to the new one, but who knows how long that will last...).
