Jeff Todd Titon’s field recordings of Old Regular Baptist singing added to the US National Registry of Recordings

Jeff Todd Titon’s field recordings of Old Regular Baptist singing have been newly selected for the US National Registry of Recordings! Recordings are chosen on account of their historical, cultural, and/or artistic merit for recognition and special preservation by the Library of Congress. Less than a half dozen ethnomusicologists have had recordings chosen for this honour. Titon joins a group that includes Frances Densmore, George Herzog and Franz Boas, Dave McAllester, and Alan Lomax.
