dc.contributor.authorHarpeth Valley Sacred Harp Singers
dc.descriptionThe Harpeth Valley Sacred Harp Singers enjoy singing the rich tradition of music variously known as shape-note, fasola, and Sacred Harp. Dating back to the eighteenth century, this type of music is sung a capella in four-part harmony and is distinctive for its massive sound, its combination of driving rhythms and folk lyricism, and its spiritual intensity. The Harpeth Valley Sacred Harp Singers recorded the song “Nashville” for the God in Music City CD. From Christian Lyre (1830), the song’s text was written by J. Leavitte, and the tune was written by Alexander Johnson in 1821. The singers were Laurens Blankers, Kerene Box, Micheala Box, Marilyn Burchett, David Carlton, Caleb Dillehay, Gail Doss, Jill Franks, Rick Fretter, Lewis Frost, Darlyne Kent, Don Kent, Linda McGill, Heidi Nolen, Anne Overton, Nancy Paris, William Paris, Tim Reynolds, Bob Simmons, and Sandie Scott. Singing out of their love for Sacred Harp music, the Singers hope to introduce others to this cherished tradition.en_US
