This chapter describes the production of the first two volumes of the This Sunday--in Person albums by James Cleveland and the Angelic Choir at First Baptist Church. It explores the sonic and lyrical content of each album and the record trade’s response to each upon their release. Some of the musical architecture established on these albums would inform arrangements used for Peace Be Still. A description of the final live recording produced in the original First Baptist Church, by the Roberta Martin Singers, precedes the razing of the church building and plans to erect a modern sanctuary on the site. Most of the funding for the new building would depend on sales of Angelic Choir recordings.

Keywords:   Billy Preston, Thurston Frazier, Joe Marshall, Angelic Choir, First Baptist Church, Roberta Martin Singers, Herb Fisher, Paul Cady, Savoy Records, Eugene Smith
