""White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands"" by George Pullen Jackson is a comprehensive study of the Fasola Folk, a group of singers who preserved the tradition of shape-note singing in the American South. The book delves into the history and cultural significance of this unique form of music, tracing its roots back to early European hymnody and exploring its evolution over time. Jackson provides detailed analysis of the songs themselves, including their lyrics, melodies, and harmonies, and discusses the role of shape-note singing in the religious and social life of the Southern Uplands. The book also includes a wealth of archival material, including photographs, musical scores, and historical documents, making it an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the history and culture of American folk music. Overall, ""White Spirituals in the Southern Uplands"" is a fascinating and engaging exploration of a little-known but important facet of Southern musical heritage.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
