The Church of God & Saints of Christ is a small but powerfully devoted Christian sect founded by a runaway slave in the nineteenth century, with congregations based in Ohio, Georgia and New Jersey. The music and performances of The CG&SC employs mainline African-American religious styles, including jubilee and gospel, but even borrows from traditional barbershop, and other harmonies. The majority of songs are composed by members themselves (who, like the Mormons, are each considered & Saints of the church). Remarkably, their songs are often imparted to church members by angels in dreams - to be brought to the Church and taught to the other members upon waking! These songs are taught orally without the use of musical notation. An extensive repertory is known denomination-wide because of an annual music-teaching gathering at Passover. Fascinating descriptive background essay by producer Dr. Terry Miller, Kent State University
