Whilst gospel music is widely believed to have originated out of the African American churches in the first quarter of the twentieth century, it quickly became a phenomenom across the whole of America. If there were separate styles of gospel to be found in African American churches and white Southern, then those styles would eventually overlap as the century wore on. Songs such as Oh Happy Day, Amazing Grace and He's Got The Whole World In His Hands have been sung in churches, regardless of demonination, for many years, and here the Manchester Gospel Choir present 28 of the best known and most popular.
