Uncle John & bemuzic duet - Glory, Glory Hallelujah Since I Laid My Burden Down

This is an old American spiritual song and has been recorded by many people.
The earliest recording I've heard of is by The Elders McIntorsh and Edwards' Sanctified Singers in 1928, then there were many others, including Odetta, Mississippi John Hurt, Furry Lewis, Mississippi Fred McDowell...and finally Uncle John & bemuzic!!!
I would never have thought of singing this type of song, but had fun doing it : -)

Thanks for all  your comments.  This was a thrill doing this with bemuzic and most of the credit and all the tech credit to her.  She IS a sweet pea.
