Southern gospel classics that will warm your heart, fill your soul, and even get your toes to tapping. Most of these religious songs come from American soil, but the imagery of the poetry, and some of the twists and turns of the melodies have been borrowed from unknown songwriters in ancient times and foreign lands. The book includes a historical survey of the roots of gospel music--shape-note hymns, religious folk songs, camp meeting spirituals, and sentimental religious songs. All songs are in melody form with lyrics and guitar chords.

(Lead Sheets: Melody line, lyrics and chord symbols). Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music, a non-profit organization committed to celebrating American music and global cultures, is the largest community school of the arts in the US. Founded in 1957, the school provides a wide ragne of music and dance classes, concerts and drop-in workshops to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. This songbook is the current iteration of a tradition going back to the founding of the school. Originally issued to new students, the pages were punched and placed in a binder, so all students could start with the same colletion of songs. Each week, students and teaching artists gather to study and share music together, and this songbook is a living and breathing representation of not only the classroom experience but a repository for notes, handouts, sketches and scribbles. This 60th anniversary edition features ancient labors of love, wrought over hundreds of years of anonymous and credited authorship as well as reference materials for every step of your musical journey.
