Sacred Harp Singing was never intended to be “listening” music. A Southern singer once said he would travel miles to sing this music, but wouldn’t walk across the street to listen to it.

Nonetheless, here are some selections to introduce you to the sound of Sacred Harp Singing. Just remember, the experience is not complete without participating in the hollow square!
