Gospel comes from the heart. The inspiring songs and rhythmic clapping are the expression of an astounding love of life and fervent devotion. The impact of African rhythms became evident in the course of the twentieth century and gave rise to music that has long since broken out of the domains of tradition and religion. "A Gospel Journey" seeks out the origins of this passionate music and the places where it is performed, and depicts the great choirs in atmospheric pictures. Music CDs: A foray into the world of Gospel with popular hits such as "Oh Happy Day," "Swing Low," and "Down by the Riverside."
