Time for some shape note singing … something I find fascinating. There does seem to be a link between this and the earlier Sunday Hymn Sing. I had put up that was from an African American hymn singing tradition. At least to my ears. It’s something about the drone and the power I think.

Info: Like many Sacred Harp songs, this one contemplates human mortality and the nature of death for a believer. Words by Isaac Watts (1707), tune by Amariah Hall (1791). Recorded at the 26th Annual Missouri State Convention, March 13, 2011.
