The Hampton Series Books I -IV, Complete.

This collection of Negro folk songs represents a faithful effort to place on paper a precise record of old plantation songs.

The songs are compiled by Natalie Curtis-Burlin, whose notation presents a vivid transcription of actual performance. Included are precise scores of 19 spirituals, work-songs and play-songs in four sections, each notated for male quartet with a piano reduction.

In addition, all four sections feature thorough engaging introductions that discuss the social context of the times, the people and their music.
