Saturday Music Post - Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" is an African American spiritual of uncertain origin. According to one story, it was composed by Wallace Willis -- either an enslaved or freed person in the Choctaw Nation -- in the mid-nineteenth century. It was distributed on sheet music by 1876, and first recorded by the Fisk Jubilee Singers in 1909. It has since become a staple in both Black and white gospel music in many genres and arrangements.
