Summary
Allen's collection of Slave Songs of the United States (1867) began as an effort to preserve the "relics of a state of society" before they disappeared. He provides a thorough discussion of the songs, including their place of origin, composition, phonetic and grammatical properties, and the qualities of their performance. Directions for singing the songs are provided before the musical transcriptions of 136, usually sacred, songs from many areas of theSouth
