This CD contains recordings of shape-note singing by a community of African American singers, writers, and composers from the Wiregrass or southeast region of the state of Alabama.

Product Detail:

The Colored Sacred Harp tunebook is a collection of shape-note songs composed and arranged by African American musicians in southeastern Alabama and published in 1934. The driving force behind the publication of this song book was Judge Jackson, whose son Japheth Jackson and friend Dewey Williams, sing on this recording along with other Jackson family members and friends in their inimitable, straight-from-the-heart style of singing. The collection includes “Florida Storm,” a favorite of the Wiregrass Singers, written by Judge Jackson.
