Praise the Lord: Gospel Music in Washington, D.C.


Praise the Lord! presents contemporary performances that draw on many traditions of African American religious music in the Washington, D.C. area. Nine groups perform a wide variety of gospel styles in solo, duet, quartet, and choir. Recorded at the Bible Way Temple in 1998 by the Anacostia Museum and Center for African American History and Culture as part of its exhibition, Speak To My Heart, Communities of Faith and Contemporary African American Life, this CD includes notes by Gail Lowe and Horace Boyer, lyrics, suggested listening, and bibliography.
