The audio recordings consist of an interview with Rev. Grady Cummings and a "performance of lining out hymns in a Lumbee church" led by Cummings at the Zion Hill Baptist Church in Robeson County, N.C. Lining out is a type of hymn singing in which a leader provides each line to be sung often by chanting. Toni Goodyear, then an undergraduate student at UNC, conducted the interview and recorded the performance for a Folklore 147 class taught by Daniel W. Patterson.
