United Sacred Harp Convention – “Alan Lomax Recordings, 1959, The” – [Mississippi Records]

In 1959, Alan Lomax recorded four-part Sacred Harp singing in stereo for the first time at this convention in Alabama. Sacred Harp is a book of folk hymns, many with origins in the British Isles. The singers divide among the four walls and then each group sings its unique part. The words are hard to make out, but there is fine spirit here.

PGM: Numbers in the titles refer to the page in the Sacred Harp Hymnal.
