Fisk Jubilee Singers: Spirituals
Credited with introducing the African-American spiritual to the wider world, the Fisk Jubilee singers made their debut in Cincinnati in 1871. Since then, the ensemble has drawn a host of wonderful young singers to Fisk University, and the Fisk Jubilee Singers have continued to be popular for over a century. This recording is from 1955.
