Check out the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in Flight on YouTube.

Alex Boye leads the choir using the plane sound system. It is great.

I think Negro Spirituals have some of the deepest, most passionate messages of any hymns. I wish more hymnals included them. The ideal that we are escaping the "slavery" of "the world" and seeking the freedom of God's Kingdom is something any Christian can relate to. I even have a jewish friend who relates it to Irsael's release of bondage in Egypt.
