The earliest music not documented in notation no doubt feels most opaque to us, but music that is documented in notation, such as songs from the Civil War, or that has remained in continuous circulation, such as spirituals, presents a different but related problem. Should the performances sound as we imagined they might have been sung by slaves or marching troops, or should they use stylized arrangements more palatable to audiences today who are experiencing them solely as listeners rather than participants?
