Among other good recordings available from Smithsonian/Folkways is the first volume of the “Wade in the Water” series. It is titled African American Spirituals: The Concert Tradition and includes midtwentieth-century recordings of the Fisk Jubilee Singers.
Also available are three volumes of early recordings of the Fisk Jubilee Quartets, the immediate descendants of the Jubilees who toured the United States in the early twentieth century. They are Fisk Jubilee Singers: 1909–1911, 1915–1920 , and 1924–1940 , and are presented in chronological order. The quartets had a different sound from the original Jubilee troupe; nevertheless, many of these singers studied under Ella Sheppard. These three volumes have been issued by England’s Document Records and can be ordered through Amazon.
