And We’ll All Sing Hallelujah: Tuesday Night Sacred Harp Singing in Northampton (2009)

Sacred Harp singing

Americans have been singing music from the Sacred Harp since it was first published in 1844. By 1900, singing from the Sacred Harp had fallen out of practice in cities, especially those in the North. But today, in Northampton, MA, the Sacred Harp, its traditions, and the community it fosters flourish once again as singers from all walks of life join together to lift their voices in song.
