The rich and soulful sounds from the "Golden Age of Gospel" are distinctly African American. They are the voices of men and women who loved to sing and raise their voices in praise. This fertile musical time period in American history is a cultural snapshot revealing the depth of a people, their community, and the influence they have had on the rest of American music. Baylor University presents the Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, an effort to preserve this valuable history and culture and celebrate the vibrant music of this era between 1945 and 1975.

Baylor Professor Robert F. Darden explores the work of the Black Gospel Music Restoration Project, and a selection of recordings is presented here free for personal, non-commercial use as a contribution to education and scholarship.

Old school

While the music is crackin', and the project is commendable, I feel that to do this justice the BGMRP needs to arrive in the 21st century. The digital presentation and accessibility is poor and distinctly 1990s, and publishing 32 titles in 8 years smacks of an abandoned effort.
