about

I Belong to This Band is a companion to the documentary film, Awake, My Soul: The Story of the Sacred Harp. The CD features 30 recordings which weave three important strands of Sacred Harp's recorded history.

The first strand is made up of the earliest recordings of the genre which were pressed on 78s in the 1920s, '30s and '40s. Second, there are home recordings made by small groups of singers in the 1950s. Third, there are recordings of contemporary all day singings which are the native environment for this music.
