Hi,

A question came up in another thread about whether the old African-Amercian spirituals by the Fisk Jubilee Singers and others are "gospel."

I think they are since they've been done so many times later by other groups. What do you think?

Also I was wondering if gospel music could be defined. I tend to think that is was perhaps started in the late 1800s (circa 1880) when revivalist hymnals by Bliss and others became popular.

It seems like the early 1920s with Vaughans (southern Gospel) and Gospel Pearls, 1921 (African-American gospel) that "Gospel" music as we know it really began.

What do you think?

Richie

Richie,

Mudcat has been around this pole so many times that I don't really want to go again, altho (and I do say so myself) I have what is probably the most useful viewpoint to you, because I do/collect/work with it ALL. PM phone info if you want to chat next week, OK?

In the meantime-- what is "folk"?

:~)

Susan,

Be glad to chat with you. I figured this topic was worn. Personally I love using old songs in new ways.

Richie
