During the 1930s, Tartt (1880-1974) worked with W.P.A. folklorists, personally interviewing people in her own county to collect the spirituals that had been sung for 100 years. An initial publication of her collection is presented, based on the manuscripts, correspondence, and personal papers examined so far. Unfortunately, only the lyrics are presented--without the music. Notes discuss sources, analogues, and recordings. Indexed only by song title. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
