American Cathedral

Gospel Dream performed at the American Cathedral in the chic 8th arrondissement of Paris, one of their well-attended regular concerts. The Assistant Organist and Choirmaster at the cathedral, William Buthod, observed that Gospel is "hugely popular" in France, but has "nothing to do with American gospel today." "It's something that you'd see in a Hollywood movie," he said. "When they bring out the gospel choir and 'this is what they sing.'" Gospel in France is caught in a time-trap, it seems; it hasn't evolved the way it has back in the states. And that's what French audiences want--good, old-fashioned, dependable "gospel."
