Traditional Gospel Music
Traditional Gospel is gospel music that is essentially Southern in origin and performed by large, soulful choirs, which in themselves are natural extensions of the rehearsed and arranged community choirs of the southern churches, both black and white. The term is also applied to the material done by smaller gospel vocal quartets who share the same church roots, or lead voice singers like Mahalia Jackson, all of whom draw from the same well. The uniting theme is that the material performed is straight out of the churches with little deliberate pop sheen, and could have come easily from any Sunday morning service in the past century.
Contemporary Gospel Music
Urban/contemporary gospel is a modern form of Christian music that expresses either personal or a communal belief regarding Christian life, as well as to give a Christian alternative to mainstream secular music. Musically, it follows the trends in secular urban contemporary music.
Urban/contemporary gospel is a recent subgenre of gospel music. Christian hip hop is a subtype of urban/contemporary gospel music. Although the style developed gradually, early forms are generally dated to the 1970s, and the genre was well established by the end of the 1980s.
The radio format is pitched primarily to African-American young adults.
Quartet Gospel Music
The term Gospel quartet refers to several different traditions of harmony singing. Its origins are varied, including 4-part hymn singing, shape-note singing, barbershop quartets, jubilee songs, spirituals, and other Gospel songs.
Gospel quartets sing in four-part harmony, with parts given to a tenor, or highest part; lead, which usually takes the melody; baritone, which blends the sounds and adds richness; and the bass, or lowest part. It is not uncommon for some quartets to switch parts between members for given songs.
In the 1980s, Gospel quartet music was somewhat overshadowed by contemporary Christian music and Urban contemporary gospel, but saw something of a revival in the 1990s.
