National Sacred Harp Convention

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

Late last week, the National Sacred Harp Convention was at a church just south of B'ham, so I took the boys to the singing (if you're not familiar with the name, but saw the movie Cold Mountain and remember the music from it - that's sacred harp).
Beautiful! I took a small-small movie, too:

At last year's convention:

This was from the first Sacred Harp singing I'd ever been to - a couple of years ago in Montgomery at the Archives building. *Oh* it was the most beautiful singing I'd ever heard...and since I uploaded it to YouTube, it's had over 10k hits:

There's also an excellent documentary about Shape Note called Awake, My Soul.
