Far beyond its immediate image of robed choirs, Gospel - through its solo singers and quartets, its impresarios and recording companies - has helped to give voice to the history of black people in America as well as shaping more obviously secular musical forms such as blues and rock 'n' roll. In this compelling and lively study, Steve Turner tells the story of Gospel against the backdrop of the social and economic changes taking place in the USA over a century and a half. He traces its history from its earliest expressions on the plantations of the south to initial influences in churches, its movement into the mainstream of popular music and on to its major period of popularity and influence in the middle decades of the 20th century. The book also features original interviews conducted by the author with many of the legendary figures of Gospel and is illustrated with photographs throughout. A beautiful book for those that want to discover more about the history of Gospel music. This hardback book has 208 pages and measures: 24.5 x 20 x 1.5cm.
