Title: Negro Church Service: 1 of 2 parts [Pleasant Grove Baptist Church]; "I'm Not Ashamed to Own My Lord" and Prayer
Description: The song is sung as a "unity" type song. The song leader chants, and the congregation responds without accompaniment. After the song, a man leads a long prayer. (It is difficult to tell whether it is one prayer or fragments of two, due to interruption in original recording). The prayer is accompanied by moaning and humming, mainly in foreground, and some singing by the congregation. Recorded at the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church, Rev. J.C. Smith, pastor.
