"I'm thrilled that the historical and important story of the legendary Harry Burleigh is finally being told! That he was, for fifty-two years, a member and celebrated soloist at the very church I attend here in New York City makes it all the more extraordinary. Hats off to Craig von Buseck for his tremendous research and work!" - Eric Metaxas, New York Times bestselling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.
"Mr. von Buseck's book, Nobody Knows, reads like a good novel, and yet he balances this colorful historical narrative with reliable scholarship. I love being taken by surprise, particularly when being introduced with such clarity to a historical figure of my own country, a pioneering spirit, one of those rare musical types that gave the soul of this nation its voice." - David Teems, author of Majestie: The King Behind the King James Bible and Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God an English Voice.
"This is an important book for people interested in American music, the Episcopal Church, and African American cultural life. Harry Burleigh was a star--he brought light to a vast number of people--his art was shared in Jewish and Christian communities, in New York City, Martha's Vineyard, and so many places. He was a man of deep feeling and ability who shared his gifts in all directions." - Rev. Tom Pike, former rector of St. George's Episcopal Church in New York City.
