The Shaker Spiritual by Daniel W. Patterson

The largest and most balanced collection of its type to date, this volume presents 366 songs from the Shaker repertory. In addition, it features quotes from interviews and unpublished diaries, numerous photographs of Shaker singers and villages, reconstructions and diagrams of nearly 20 Shaker dances and marches, a checklist of 800 Shaker song manuscripts, and a survey of British antecedents of the American folk spiritual. "The finest piece of scholarship in the field of Shaker studies written in this century." — Theodore E. Johnson, Director, Shaker Library and Museum.
