I Belong to This Band, Hallelujah!

(Community, Spirituality, and Tradition Among Sacred Harp Singers)
Laura Clawson - University of Chicago Press
The Sacred Harp choral singing tradition originated in the American South in the mid-nineteenth century, spread widely across the country, and continues to thrive today.  Sacred Harp isn't performed but participated in, ideally in large gatherings where, as the a cappella singers face each other around a hollow square, the massed voices take on a moving and almost physical power.  "I Belong to This Band, Hallelujah!" is a vivid portrait of several Sacred Harp groups and an insightful exploration of how they manage to maintain a sense of community despite their members' often profound differences.  Paperback, 208 p.
