Bishop Michael Curry on Black Church music

"Even if they aren't singing the old Negro spirituals, you hear the idioms of those spirituals. It's where when you begin to speak in a certain way, or better yet, when somebody starts singing in a certain way, folk inside, they start reacting and responding, and eventually there may be some shouts and there may be silence.  Something is moving.  That's where the Black Church is found.  It's in those heartbeats."   The Black Church, p.8
