About the recording

When I was a child, singing church songs was a great source of comfort and happiness for me, especially when I was singing them in the kitchen of my grandmother, Ruth Nelson.   My mother's mother, she was a strong, life-affirming woman, and her kitchen was the center of her world.  There she consoled us, corrected us and she cooked for us.  There too I sang, often with Joy, my aunt, while we washed the dishes or just passed the time.  The songs themselves we learned in the rural churches we attended.  They remain the songs that are closest to my heart.
