For more than two hundred years in churches throughout the country, the strains of gospel hymns, spiritual songs and contemporary black music have offered solace and celebration to all, leaving their mark on American popular music. "Ev'ry Time I Feel the Spirit" contains the lyrics and music for 101 of the most widely known and cherished of these pieces, ranging from heartrending spirituals sung while African-Americans were enslaved - "Steal Away, " "There Is a Balm in Gilead, " "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" - to gospel hymns and songs of unity from the civil rights movement through today - "We Shall Overcome, " "I'll Fly Away." The book also presents a lively biography of each composer and a history of the evolution of each song, examining how the music emboldened black people to carry on in the face of adversity.
