This book celebrates the people who sang Sacred Harp songs in the Deep South in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and brings to light their vanished worlds. Rich in lively anecdotes and period photographs, the narrative, through treasured heirloom stories, guides our gaze to Alabama abolitionists, forgotten ballads, drone singing, shoutin' happy singers, swept yards, red-eye gravy, and Baptist biscuits. And the author delights in telling his own early journeys into Sacred Harp singing.
