The common Christian themes of worship, praise, thanksgiving, fellowship and the Gospel message tend to be expressed in a less formal way than they do in normal church hymns. Songs also tend to be rather sentimental and have a tendency to yearn for better days gone by. Songs vary from overtly religious to secular with few Christian references, perhaps with the purpose of making them more acceptable to a less religious audience who may not even recognise the Christian allusions.
Many bluegrass bands include gospel music in their repertoire. The style commonly features faster tempo, emphasis on instrumentation commonly, banjo, mandolin and fiddlethree or four-part harmony singing, and A cappella choruses. Like bluegrass Gospel, strong, wide range, harmonies, generally four part, are a common feature. Note that, although these Gospel genres include songs from, and are certainly influenced by Negro Spiritual and black gospel traditions they are primarily a white Gospel phenomenon.
