Tambourines to Glory: Gospel Songs by Langston Hughes and Jobe Huntley

Rollicking gospel spills out of Harlem’s Second Canaan Baptist Church. Langston Hughes wrote lyrics to these songs for his novel and play Tambourines to Glory with a small, independent gospel church chorus just like this in mind. Jobe Huntley set Hughes’s lyrics to music.
