Why sing Sacred Harp?

January 25th, 2007 | by Will |

Linda does as good a job as anything I’ve read to describe why one sings Sacred Harp music:

Sometimes I need to shout down my fear, sometimes I need to voice praise and thanks, other times I need to join my dead. Right now, what I need most is a sweet song that makes me feel held by God.

The All-California Sacred Harp Convention this past weekend was all these things.
