    Welcome to the Deep River Podcast. In this program we’ll explore the compelling story, sound and impact of the Negro Spirituals. What echoes of the past can be heard in their tune? What stories can they tell? I hope you’ll join me as we dive into the origin, history and meaning, behind the Spirituals.

    “There is a body of American sacred songs commonly called Negro spirituals. These songs express – both in their words and in the way they are performed musically – the deep religious feelings of the African-American people. They are an important part of the American cultural heritage, and are now recognized globally as anthems to liberty that can feed the deepest aspirations of the human soul.”
