TRADITIONAL AFRICAN-AMERICAN SPIRITUALS MY LORD, WHAT A MORNIN�

African-American spirituals are recognized as a distinctive American from and style of composition, and constitute a volume of music, which is appealing to performers and audiences across all boundaries being eminently suitable material for practical use in both worship and in concert. Spirituals are religious folksongs, which evolved and are associated with a complex history of revivalism in America, between 1740 and the 19th century. The very first Negro spirituals were inspired by African music even if the tunes were not far from those of hymns. Some of them, which were called �shouts�, were accompanied with typical dancing including hand clapping and foot tapping. The tunes and the beats of Negro spirituals and Gospel songs are highly influenced by the music of their actual cultural environment. It means that their styles are continuously changing.The lyrics of negro spirituals were tightly linked with the lives of their authors: slaves. While work songs dealt only with their daily life, spirituals were inspired by the message of Jesus Christ and his Good News (Gospel) of the Bible, �You can be saved�. They are different from hymns and psalms, because they were a way of sharing the hard condition of being a slave.
