1. Dr. Watts (1674-1748) was a dissenting English preacher from London, who published a collection of mostly original hymns in 1707  They became the standard hymns in the colonies.  Their stark language and blunt metaphors of physical tribulation and spiritual transcendence spoke directly to the slaves experience.  Later Spirituals developed more elaborate imagery.

1.harmony
2.rhythm
