Some of the most famous negro spiritual songs purportedly sent more than an uplifting spiritual musical message. One such song is Follow the Drinking Gourd. Fugitive slaves would follow The Drinking Gourd - another name for the Big Dipper - northward. Some historians also believe there are Underground Railroad clues to follow in the negro spiritual songs Wade in the Water and Swing Low, Sweet Chariot, among others. These are just some of the truly.

Spirituals" redirects here. For the David Murray album, see Spirituals (album). For the medieval Franciscan sect, see Fraticelli. Although numerous rhythmical and sonic elements of spirituals can be traced to African sources, spirituals are a musical form that is indigenous and specific to the religious experience in the United States of Africans and their descendants. They are a result of the interaction of music and religion from Africa with music and religion of European origin. Further, this interaction occurred only in the United States. Spirituals were primarily expressions of religious faith. Some may also have served as socio-political protests veiled as assimilation to white American culture. They originated among enslaved Africans in the United States.

This famous spiritual – also known as ‘Ain’t Gonna Study War No More’ and ‘Gonna Lay Down My Burden’ – has its origins in the American Civil War (1861-65), though it was not actually published until 1918, when it appeared in Plantation Melodies: A Collection of Modern, Popular And Old-Time Negro-Songs Of The Southland, Chicago. Aretha Franklin was only 14 when she recorded the 1956 album Songs Of Faith (later reissued in 1983 as Aretha Gospel) at the New Bethel Baptist Church, where her father was the reverend. Among the remarkable performances is her version of this hymn by the English 18th-century hymn writer and poet William Cowper.

Famous Gospel Songs: Sample of Each Class. Swing Low Sweet Chariot (Wallace Willis). In this most famous call and response chant type song the preacher sings the first line and the congregation echos with a response: Preacher: Swing low, sweet chariot. Congregation: Coming for to carry me home. God loves us very much just keep on having faith with our god beacuse he is docter of docters. JULIUS April 3, 2013 at 7:26 am.
