Fred McDowell was mentioned above in the thread. Fred, a great bluesman, was a lifelong member of the Hunters Chapel Baptist Church. Being a Baptist, rather than Sanctified, he was able to perform both secular and sacred music. Several of his Arhoolie CDs Arhoolie blues have gospel tunes, and one is about one half gospelGood Morning Little School Girl. And he recorded an entire CD of gospel songs with members of the Hunters Chapel congregation. Hightone/Testament: Amazing Grace. And then there are Lomax's astounding recordings made on Fred's porch one Mississippi night in 1959 First Recordings
