You might check out Paul Robeson, see if there are any re-issues. I think they still used wax when he was recording. Signature song "Old Man River" was recorded with orchestra but I'm sure my grandmother had sheet music with a decent piano reduction. Goodness knows about availability. Mind you, as a tenor you'll be about an octave above his rendition!
