Awake, My Soul (and then Help Me To Sing)

I just got in a 2-CD set from Amazon based around the documentary on traditional Sacred Harp singing entitled "Awake, My Soul". The first disc is several recording of traditional sacred harp singing, which are certainly rousing, if not particularly enjoyable.

The second disc, however, is Sacred Harp hymns recorded by a variety of artists, and this CD is absolutely wonderful. I don't drink anymore, but if I did this CD would go perfect with a whiskey iced tea on a warm, slightly breezy summer evening while sitting on the porch.

I watched a clip on Youtube of some sacred harp music. Very hearty congregational singing indeed.
