Shout! Black Gospel Music Moments - "Deep River"

Feb 24, 2019

During World War II, Leonard De Paur created the De Paur Infantry Chorus, which would bring extraordinary music into the lives of soldiers in both the European and Pacific theaters. After the war, the chorus stayed together and recorded some remarkable albums of spirituals and sacred classical music. This is their rendition of "Deep River." 


The 36 enlisted men of the De Paur Infantry Chorus became one of the U.S. Armys greates assets.
