Randye Jones, McFarland, June 2023

This work catalogs commercially produced recordings of Negro spirituals composed for solo concert vocalists. More than 5,000 tracks are listed. The featured recordings enhance the study of concert spiritual performance in studio, concert, worship service, and competition settings. This guide extends beyond simply providing historical context and encourages the use of the recordings themselves. Jones manages media collections for the Grinnell College Libraries.
