“Lead me” sing “lead me” they move with a repetitive rhythm
Dom Mocquereau: “rhythm is the ordering of the movement”
repetitive rhythm orders them to move on “lead”
they move with all their weight on “lead” it sounds like “feed”
it’s the Soul Stirrers it’s the most rhythmic music you ever heard
repetitive rhythm it sounds like “feed me”
S.R. Crain tenor A.L. Johnson baritone J.J. Farley bass
Edmond Jabès: “can we be healed by repetition?”
the Soul Stirrers move with a repetitive rhythm sing “feed me.”
Thomas Dorsey came to Chicago came looking for deliverance
Georgia Tom came in 1916 the Soul Stirrers in 1937
to get deliverance you have to wait on the movements of providence
he played piano he sang at buffet flats at rent parties
he was a smooth player and he sang softly
a smooth player they called him “the whispering piano player”
the most popular dance at the parties was the slow drag
he learned how to drag easy how to sing softly
how to drag easy how to wait on the movements of providence.

Soul Stirrers move with a repetitive rhythm sing “feed me”
repetitive rhythm orders them to sing “feed me”
R.H. Harris sings lead he sings the essential word
R.H. Harris taught Sam Cooke and Sam Cooke taught Johnny Taylor
Johnny Taylor “Who’s Making Love” 1968
R.H. Harris: “they got a touch of me even if they don’t know me”
what they got a touch of touch of tongue love
R.H. Harris taught them to study the essential word
the word brings it to a picture it’s the lord making love.
Thomas Dorsey wrote the words wrote the words and the music
Thomas Dorsey wrote the words wrote the essential word
wrote “precious” not “blessed” the essential word is “precious”
this was to be enshrined as a moment of epiphany
moment when he wrote the better-sounding word
moment of épiphanie epiphania epiphano epiphaneia epiphanies
moment of epiphany essential word shining picture
Dorsey: “that thing like something hit me and went all over me”
that thing must be that same thing went all over him.

Sneeuw

Kind zijn, om het hardst lopen met de wind.
Sneeuw het land nu kust,
de dag lost op,
de sneeuwman
kinderen liefkoost.

De kou niet voelen,
die het huis omringt,
reizen met de wind,
sneeuw het land
in een kus omarmt.
