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

Second Canaan Baptist Church Porter Singers FW03538 / FG 3538

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.
