Title: Service of Song, Slave Hymns & Melodies, The Jubilee Singers
Associated name : American Missionary Association
Associated name : Fisk University Jubilee Singers
Date Created: 1874-02-12
Abstract: 4 tifs. A program for a concert by the Jubilee Singers on February 12, 1874 held at the Exchange Opera House in Wolverhampton, England under patronage of the mayor, W.H. Jones, various gentlemen and ministers. The concert was billed as a "Service of Song consisting of slave hymns & melodies." The program lists the ticket prices, Rev. G.D. Pike as the District Secretary of the American Missionary Association, and George White as the treasurer of Fisk University. On the pages that follow there is information about the tour and how the group is seeking to earn 14,000 pounds to aid in building Fisk University, and testimonials from those who have heard the singers perform. The testimonials mention that some of the singers were previously slaves, and sing "wild slave songs" that are unlike any music Europeans have heard. The testimonials also conflate the singers` performance with supporting emancipation and restitution of former slaves. The final page of the program lists the chartered institutions of the American Missionary Association, including Fisk University. Additional programs for concerts in 1874 in Birmingham and Cambridge are also included in the collection, as well as a similar program for a concert in Germany in 1877.
