Praise – Sacred Heart Singing

“Sacred Harp singing (also “Shape-note singing” or, of the repertory, “Shape-note hymnody”) is a tradition of sacred choral music that flourished in the American South of the United States. The name is derived from The Sacred Harp, a ubiquitous and historically important book of Sacred Harp music.” Wikipedia

I love the sound of this type of singing. Some of my ancestors came from the south, I am sure many of them participated in this type of praise. This Sacred Harp video also includes beautiful and moving portraits of Native Americans. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
