Tallmadge, May-July, October 1968. The collection includes two linear inches of correspondence, notes, and song lists. (includes AFS 13,672-13,680) (LWO 5611) [catalog record]

Summary: Field recordings of Baptist lining-out hymns recorded in Knott County, Magoffin County, and Breathitt County, Kentucky; and in Lima, Ohio; by William H. Tallmadge, during May-July, and October 1968. This singing tradition is also known as lined-out hymnody, where a leader chants ("lines" or "gives out") each line of text prior to its singing in unison by the group. Tallmadge primarily recorded members of the area's United Baptist Churches and Regular Baptist Churches. In addition to lined-out hymns, he recorded solo hymn singing, hymns sung without lining-out; gospel and revival hymns; and hymn singing at homes. He recorded several church services, including hymns, prayers, sermons, testimonies, memorial services and funerals; plus children's singing, folk dances, and games at school. He interviewed hymn singers, leaders, and clergy about their family histories, performance style, knowledge of rarely sung hymns, knowledge of hymn tunes; uses of hymnals and ballad sheets or ballad books. The collection includes copies of Tallmadge's notes on his interviews, which describe the singers' homes, children, education, occupations (including coal mining), religious beliefs, and migration of family members to Ohio and Indiana for work, as well as various singers' and churches' reactions to his project to record their hymns for the Library of Congress. Notebooks include a listing of the versions of the hymns collected by Tallmadge arranged by title. There is some music notation for a few hymns. The collection includes correspondence between Tallmadge and the Archive of Folk Song, 1966-1968, and an article by Tallmadge, "Anglo-Saxon vs. Scotch-Irish" in Mountain Life and Work, 45 no. 2 (February 1969).
