Excerpt from Old Plantation Hymns: A Collection of Hitherto Unpublished Melodies of the Slave and the Freedman, With Historical and Descriptive Notes
The foregoing song uses principally stanzas that have reference to death, and contain a warning; but among a great collection of them there is no certain order. Several hymns in com mon use furnish couplets for this pur pose, - most of all, Jesus my all to heaven is gone. Other hymns are used. I have the music - strikingly like that of one of our college songs oi one hymn which uses half a stanza of Am I a soldier of the cross? And it is quite effective used in this way, with the question of the first half un answered. It is one of the few negro hymns which requires a bass clef. The body of the hymn is sung in uni son - the response being sung in bass and all accordant parts.
In the published Jubilee songs, the harmony has been added for piano and quartette; but it is rarely found in negro songs.
