- Program Description
Early Americans sang their own hymns, hymns rising directly from the American spirit, asserting their independence from European rules of harmony and formality. Join Ellen Kushner for shape-note singing from the Sacred Harp and other collections of American mountain folk hymns, and for concert music from American composers inspired by this rough and ready American hymnody.
