Assumptionist priest Bruno Chenu provides an extraordinary record of the origin and history of Negro spirituals and offers unique historical and sociological insights into their meaning. He begins by establishing the context of spirituals’ origins by focusing on the North American slave trade from the seventeenth through the nineteenth centuries.
This book features an exhaustive study of the various themes found within the spirituals, which number today over 6,000. Chenu provides a glimpse into the very soul of the slave through hymns, prayers, and the astonishing personal testimonies of free and former slaves.
This inspiring resource—which includes the full text of more than 200 spirituals and a musical CD of eighteen spirituals—is one no collector of books should be without.
