1873 - 1925 Person Name: John W. Work Adapter of "Lord, I Want to Be a Christian" in Baptist Hymnal 1991 John Wesley Work II (sometimes Jr.) was born, educated, worked and died in Nashville. He majored in history and Latin at Fisk University (B.A. 1895, M.S. 1898), after which he was instructor of Greek and Latin until 1906 when he was appointed chair of the department. Work and his brother, Frederick Jerome (1879-1942), were leading figures in the preservation, performance and study of African-American spirituals. They published several collections of slave songs and spirituals, including New Jubilee Songs as Sung by Fisk Jubilee Singers (1901) and Folk Songs of the American Negro (1907). John Work II’s treatise The Folk Song of the American Negro (1915) was one of the earliest studies of African-American music undertaken by a descendant of an ex-slave. Work was named president of Roger Williams University, a position he held at the time of his death. --The Presbyterian Hymnal Companion

Small Church Music

Editors: Christopher M. Idle Description: The SmallChurchMusic site was commenced in 2006 grew out of the requests from those struggling to provide suitable music for their services and meetings. Rev. Clyde McLennan was ordained in mid 1960’s and was a pastor in many small Australian country areas, and therefore was acutely aware of this music problem. Having also been trained as a Pipe Organist, recordings on site (which are a subset of the site) are all actually played by Clyde, and also include piano and piano with organ versions. All recordings are in MP3 format. Churches all around the world use the recordings, with downloads averaging over 60,000 per month. The recordings normally have an introduction, several verses and a slowdown on the last verse. Users are encouraged to use software: Audacity ( or Song Surgeon ( (see for more information) to adjust the MP3 number of verses, tempo and pitch to suit their local needs. Copyright notice: Rev. Clyde McLennan, performer in this collection, has assigned his performer rights in this collection to Non-commercial use of these recordings is permitted.
