Fisk University was founded in 1866 to provide higher education to African-Americans who became free after the Civil War. To raise money for the institution, the school's chorus, known as the Jubilee Singers, began performing concerts of Negro folksongs and spirituals. This book is their remarkable story and includes 139 of the great songs they performed. Most songs have lyrics and piano arrangement, although a few songs have only the lyrics and the melody line. Included are well known favorites Deep River, Go Down Moses, Good News the Chariot's Coming, Way Over Jordan, and many more.

PUBLIC DOMAIN STATUS: This is an unabridged reprint of a book published in the United States in 1892.  All the selections in this volume are in the Public Domain in the United States. The first edition of this book was published in 1881, so it is a virtual certainty that all of these songs are in the public domain worldwide.
