Subject: Afro-American Hymnal
From: GUEST,Sharon
Date: 28 Aug 01 - 08:16 PM

Can you give me the name of, and where I can purchase, a good Afro-American hymnal. I was looking for words to a tune, and it was suggested I check in a Black church hymnal. Which are good ones? Thanks.

Well, you could try clicking HERE, they seem to think very highly of their hymnal, though I personally cannot vouch for it one way or the other. And the Episcopals offer this Hymnal which may be good, and which certainly may be purchased. this site may also provide leads; I have not the patience to read it through.

I am using one I like very much recommended by another Mudcatter-- Songs of Zion, Verolga Nix. Amazon has it new and DID have it used. Some items in it include chords. If you click the banjo-catfish logo on the forum page and follow the links you will find a link to Amazon that, if you purchase through it, supports the Mudcat.

Also, what piece are you looking for? I bet someone here has it, maybe me.

I like Songs of Zion, too. Warren's, Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit (1997) is not a hymnal, but contains "101 best-loved psalms, gospel hymns, and spiritual songs of the African-American Church."

Not strictly a hymnal, but there is a 1992 Dover reprint of Harold Courlander's "Negro Folk Music, U.S.A." (original 1963) that does include a number of "anthems, spirituals," etc.

I picked up a new copy fairly recently for $7.95, so it's apparently still readily available, and cheap enough to be interesting as a "fill-out" addition to a person's ref library.

ISBN 0-486-27350-4, about 300 pages, approx 40 tunes scored, with some additional text-only lyrics.

Years ago in an "Army surplus" store where I was looking for cheap camping gear I found a US Army hymnal which had a huge selection of gospel/spirituals in. I think I ended up passing it on to the local Scouts, I don't seem to have it any more.

According to Daniel Kingman, American Music: A Panorama, 2nd ed. (Schirmer, 1990),

More recent collections that reflect to a greater degree the influence of gospel music in the various denominations are: The New National Baptist Hymnal (incorporating songs by Cleveland and Crouch); Songs of Zion (from the United Methodist Church); Lift Every Voice (from the Episcopal Church); and Yes, Lord! (from the Church of God in Christ, a black Holiness church).

Sorry to say, of these I know only Songs of Zion, but this info may be of some help.

All of the above are good suggestions. You might try looking for old, used classroom music books which would have been used in elementary school music classes. They are wonderful sources of songs of America's heritage as well as songs from most every country & former country on the planet. I also collect hymnals and my favorites have been the US Armed Services hymnals. If there is a military installation near you, you might try contacting one of the chaplains, as they might allow you to have an old hymnal which would not be in use anymore.

And nursing homes are another source for good old hymnals to borrow. You could call an activities director in a place that has a large AA population and ask what they have.

I thought I had a real 'find" when I came across a 1957 copy of the African Methodist Episcopal Hymnal. Not so. It's just like most of the other standard Protestant hymnals.

Lift Every Voice and Sing II is much more what I was looking for. It was published in 1993 by the Church Pension Fund (Episcopalians).

For more historic stuff, try American Negro Spirituals, by James Weldon Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson. The book was published in two volumes in 1925 and 1926, and is now available as a single paperback volume from Da Capo Press.

Sharon, what's the song you're looking for? There's a good chance we can find the information for you.

My apologies that the readability of the following is ot the best. (It's a text conversion from the website.) This is a compilation of several collectors' work (note names associated with each title), in a specific area, as described in the introductory material.

Oh, my. I hadn't noticed that "Slave Songs" is a one-page document, with scans of every single page of the book. It should take forever and a day to load. Too bad they decided to design it that way.

No, Joe, it printed in less than an hour. Piece of cake. Or save it as a text file for lyrics, and print selected saved pix of the music when needed. Or bribe me to send you a copy....

As for the reprinted editions of Slave Songs of the United States, there have been at least four known to me.

(1) New York: Peter Smith, 1929, 1951.
(2) New York: Oak Publications, 1965. With foreword by Irving Schlein. Guitar chords and music (piano arrangements) editing by Jerry Silverman. Illustrations added. Only the preface is a facsimile reproduction.
(3) Baltimore: Clearfield Company, 1992. With a new introduction by W.K. McNeil
(4) New York: Dover Publications, 1995

I think (3) & (4) are in print now.

The material above that is pertinent to African-American Spirituals, and any new material about them added here, will eventually be edited into the new permathread on African-American Spirituals. Please post what you know, especially links to good past discussions, here-- until it gets brought together in the permathread.

Full bibliographic information is always appreciated, and if you know if the material currently is in print (or not), that is also helpful.

Thanks!

Subject: Index: Every time I Feel the Spirit
From: Joe Offer
Date: 11 Sep 01 - 03:38 AM

Masato mentioned Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit, by Gwendolyn Sims Warren. I have an uncorrected proof copy. In the index, every song is shown as being on page 000 - but I think the index should be close to a true listing of what's in the book. It's a terrific book, with lyrics, music, and the stories behind 101 hymns.

CLICK HERE to see and hear the Metropolitan Music Ministry, which functions under the direction of the REVEREND NOLAN WILLIAMS, JR., Minister of Music. Williams is also the chief music editor of the highly-acclaimed bestseller, the African American Heritage Hymnal, a book which has documented much of the oral sacred music tradition of the Black Church.

The supplement to Songs of Zion, Zion Still Sings, which includes also newer material and even a couple of hiphop hymns, is worth looking at. I don't think it would work as a stand-alone hymnal, but as a supplement to any of the "normal" AA hymnals — (as a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, I always do a double-take when I see, let alone use, "AA" that way) — like Lift Every Voice and Sing II (Episcopal), Lead Me, Guide Me (Catholic), African-American Heritage Hymnal (interdenominational from GIA), New National Baptist Hymnal, or others (Lutheran, COGIC, AME/Z, etc. mentioned above, I think it would come in handy.

Incidentally, Hymnary.org has a complete index of the AAHH, with page scans at least of the public-domain materials.

Ran across my 1942 Army Navy Hymnal yesterday, so if anybody wants something looked up in it, I'm the guy. I've begun adding it to the Hymnary.org database, which only had the DNAH first-lines list. For a hymnal its day it's indeed got a great section of Spirituals (though oddly neither of the best known Christmas ones (Rise up, Shepherd and Got tell it on the Mountain) nor the most "liturgically apt" one (Let us break bread together). But then those you can find in many other hymnals today, whereas some of these are harder to come by:

I have a mother over yonder
Don't you want to go to heaven
Goodbye, mourner, I'm going home
My Lord, what a mourning (when the stars begin to fall)
In-a this-a band we have sweet music
I've got a robe (crown, shoes, harp, song)
Listen to the lambs (all a-crying)
It's me, it's me O Lord standing in the need of prayer
Steal away, steal away, steal away to Jesus
Great day! Great day, the righteous marching
O Mary, don't you weep, don't you mourn
And I couldn't hear nobody pray
Lord, I want to be a Christian
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
Swing low, sweet chariot
When Israel was in Egypt's land (Let my people go)
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen

Generally I'm not in favor of segregation, but it sure made it easier for me to locate the spirituals in that hymnal! ;-)
