Check us out in the Sacred Harp Newsletter!

Our friend Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg invited us to write an article about the forthcoming publication of The Shenandoah Harmony. The result appears in the newest issue of The Sacred Harp Publishing Company Newsletter.  In addition to a brief summary of the project and our progress thus far, we’ve highlighted four of our favorite songs with links to YouTube videos: Chapin’s PSALM 30 (1813), Wyeth & Davisson’s CONSOLATION NEW (1813), Richard Popp’s STONY ISLAND (1994), and Merit Woodruff’s SINAI (1801).  The first two recordings are from the Keystone Convention and the second two are from the NSV All-Day.  Thanks to all of you who helped us sing!  Here’s the article.
