Lifeline:


Music of the Underground Railroad celebrates spirituals from the Civil War era and before. Michelle Mayne-Graves arranged these songs for her Lifeline Quartet as a tribute to Harriet Tubman and the thousands of unsung heroes who escaped slavery for Pennsylvania, Ohio and later for Canada. Escape routes to the North were nicknamed “The Underground Railroad,” and Tubman was one of its most celebrated “conductors.” As she is reported to have said, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” This album celebrates some of the spirituals that were adopted by the Underground Railroad and served as memory aides and morale boosters for escaping slaves. These songs were usually biblical in nature and would have been sung in church. They would have been heard as such by slave owners. But in addition to their religious content, these spirituals contained hidden clues, navigational instructions and are therefore known as code songs.
