I’LL RUN ON TO HIS THRONE
Here is a beautiful “lining” type hymn from the ever harmonious Pilgrim Travelers. A while back I posted a congregational lining hymn by Deacon Shinault which was inspired by a post on The Singing Bones that featured another quartet version of a lining hymn by The Echoes of Zion. This one by the Pilgrim Travelers is a real shiver-me-timbers affair with leads Kylo Turner and Keith Barber leading the way; the rest of the Travelers keep the cold chills meter on high: J. W. Alexander (tenor), Jesse Whitaker (baritone), Raphael Taylor (bass). Recorded in Hollywood, July 21, 1950.
