Abstract

From the Black Sacred Music Archive The Black Sacred Music Archive was founded in 1984 by the editor of The Journal of Black Sacred Music with a grant from the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation. Presently located at the Duke University Divinity School, its aim is to assemble for the use of faculty, students, and visiting researchers the published and unpublished sacred music of black religion (spirituals, abolition song, hymns, gospel music, civil rights songs, blues, anthems, cantatas, etc.), including the music of non-black composers writing or arranging in these idioms sacred to black religion. Always in search of private donations to enhance its historic and scholastic value, the archive now holds approximately 675 pieces of music, including black denominational hymnals, books, pam­ phlets, and programs. In addition, the archive owns the papers of John Ho­ wardton Smith (1880-1977), an early twentieth century black hymnist, and Kenneth Brown Billups (1918-1985), St. Louis educator, choral conductor, and of books recently donated arranger of black spirituals.
