Title: Negro Church Service [Barton Springs Baptist Church]: 1 of 2 parts
Description: Recorded at the Barton Springs Baptist Church, Austin, TX, during a rally to raise funds to repair the church. Rev. R.R. Reese was the guest preacher, and includes songs such as "That Awful Day," "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say," and "Will You Guide Me," most of which are performed in the "old one hundred" style by an unaccompanied congregation. The original recording was in poor condition prior to digitization, and the first 8 minutes are difficult to discern.
