The Music Men: The Story of Professional Gospel Music Singing
From the time the very first professional gospel quartet went on the road in 1910 through, roughly, the 1960s, the gospel singing quartet was a staple in the religious music empire. Author Terrell spend more than 20 years interviewing old-timers and gathering information on the Vaughans and the Stamps, the Blackwoods and Fowlers, and all the others who pioneered gospel quartet singing. In this far-ranging volume, these pioneers in the field come alive through the stories of those who knew them, heard them, and loved them -- first and foremost Terrell himself, who approaches gospel music with the attention of one who wants to preserve its traditions.
