HYMN TIME

The Vaughan Quartette (more often spelled "Quartet").  James T. Vaughan was a successful publisher of gospel songbooks, selling more than 30,000 in 1909 alone.  The following year he organized a quartet to go on the road and help sell his books; his sales doubled.  The quartet was so popular that Vaughan kept adding more of them until, by the mid-1920s, there were sixteen quartets traveling throughout the country.  This recording, from the 1920s, is undated.  I have no idea which "Quartet" this is, nor do I know who any of the singers are.  The picture of The Vaughan Quartet show five people -- one, I assume, is their pianist.
