A 19th century spiritual, sung by Dean Phelps & Twana Harris
On this video we share a special quartet of Susan Blosser (soprano), Leah Trigg (alto and music director), Dan Blosser (tenor) and Dean Phelps (bass) from Southport Christian Church, Indianapolis, sharing in the 19th century spiritual, "Down to the River to Pray." This was recorded on January 6, 2013 on the special occasion of the last Sunday morning worship where Dean was able to sing as part of the quartet before moving to Oklahoma in January 2012.

DisciplesNet offers this as a special meditation for Maundy Thursday:
A meditation with the American spiritual, "Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley", sung by the choir of Allisonville Christian Church, Indianapolis, IN, USA. Soloist: Steve Caress.
In May 2011, two of DisciplesNet's favorite song providers, Rev. Dr. Twana A. Harris and Rev. Dean Phelps, came to our DisciplesNet studio to let us record them singing some favorites that we thought would bring a lift to our audience.
We hope you will enjoy hearing their special blend of voices on this African American spiritual, "Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen."
At the end of the song, stay tuned for part of Psalm 61 and a brief prayer for your journey.
