Wade in the Water  Vol. 1-4  4 CD Set

Wade in the Water Vol. 1-4 4 CD Set

  • $3999


This four-CD set of 19th- and 20th-century African American sacred music was initially released as a companion to the 1995 Peabody Award-winning radio series of the same name produced by National Public Radio and the Smithsonian Institution. With extensive notes by Bernice Johnson Reason, who conceived and compiled the series, these recordings honor the rich sacred music tradition created and sustained within the African American community, from which so much contemporary American music draws its inspiration.
