Note: Alan Lomax: "'…and pities every groan… long as I live where trouble rise… I hasten to God's throne.' Then goes on to preach with choir moaning sweetly behind. In 3 minutes he is breathing like an animal / A sexual sound?? The sermon takes 10 minutes – is about Lot's wife." Editor's note: The Reverend and congregation sing "I Love the Lord, He Hears My Cry" in the middle of the sermon.
About the session: Spirituals and preaching at a service of the Great Harvest Missionary Baptist Church, at their temporary home at the New Browns Chapel in Memphis. According to the announcement made by the "narrator" in the middle of T904.1, the congregation choir is under the direction of Mrs. Lulabelle Johnson. Other credits she gives, including her own, are indecipherable.
