From the notes by Pat Conte to today’s lovely track: “In the Bulawayo province of once Southern Rhodesia . . . comes an old Unitarian hymn of adoration “Come [Thou] Fount of Every Blessing” attributed to James Wyeth in 1813. The girls, led by Lily Kumalo, sing in the Sechuana language of Bechuanaland.”

Hope Fountain Native Girls’ Choir • Indaba Yomkonto • c. 1930

More wonderful worldwide hits 1925–1948 on The Secret Museum of Mankind Vol. 3.
