NEW DOXOLOGY is a musical setting from the oral traditions of the African American community. The first phrase of this tune is identical to DUKE STREET (412), and that may cause confusion in some congregations. The harmonization is unmistakably African American gospel style, however, and should be accompanied by piano and other instruments including drums (if played on the organ, this tune could be simplified by omitting some of the triplets, especially on the "Amen" line). Sing in unison; keep a majestic pace in the style of African American slow-meter hymns.
