A collection of seventeen Negro spirituals collected by Carl W. Haywood (b. 1949). It was published in 1992. These Negro spirituals were all included in Lift Every Voice and Sing II, An African American Hymnal (1993). The Haywood Collection of Negro Spirituals was a continuation of the work of musicians such as R. Nathaniel Dett and John Work, who collected simple spirituals for use in college chapels and university choirs. Haywood served as a professor of music at Norfolk State University, Norfolk, Virginia, and as organist and choir master at Grace Episcopal Church, Norfolk.
