Book Description: Washington, DC Elder Lightfoot Michaux (1933)., 1933. Illustrated self-wrappers. One leaf folded to make four pages. Printed in blue. Very light wear, near fine. A nice example of this fragile piece of sheet music. The theme song of Michaux’s Church of God, the song is dedicated to the happy President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, who is pictured on the rear wrap. Evangelist Michaux was known for his gospel singing prowess, and was something of a television pioneer, hosting a religious television show from the nation’s capitol in 1948-49. When Ezra Pound was incarcerated in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, he included a reference to Lightfoot in his Canto 95. Very scarce. Not in OCLC, and we’ve not seen another example.
