Dwight Andrews, associate professor of music theory and a renowned musician-theologian, will lead a program of spirituals and folk hymns on Sunday, April 21, at 7 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Atlanta (105 Courtland St.), where Andrews also is pastor. Less well known than its cousin, the Negro spiritual, the folk hymn arose from poor whites in the 19th century South.
