Authentic record of traditional plantation songs sung by students at Virginia's Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute, brilliantly compiled and notated. Nineteen transcriptions of spirituals, work-songs and play-songs, each scored for male quartet with piano reduction of vocal parts, from "Go Down, Moses" to "Cott'n-pickin' song." Also includes discussions of social context of the times.
