Product Description:

With roots in the deep South, Sacred Harp singing is a form of a cappella shape note hymn performance. Originating over 200 years ago, the style is known for its haunting quality and sometimes eerie sound. The first documentary of its kind, AWAKE MY SOUL: STORY OF THE SACRED HARP examines the Lost Tonal Tribe through interviews, archival footage, and performances.

Description by Allegro:

Awake, My Soul is the first feature documentary about Sacred Harp singing, a haunting form of a cappella shape note hymn singing with deep roots in the American South. Shape note singing has survived for over 200 years in the rural Deep South, where singers break open a 160-yearold hymnal that has preserved these fiercely beautiful songs. The film offers a glimpse into the lives of this Lost Tonal Tribe, whose history is a story of rebellion and tradition. This special edition includes the original documentary as seen on American public television as well as interviews, deleted scenes, and commentary by stars and filmmakers-over 5 hours of bonus features in all. Has been featured by TIME, Paste, NPR, XM Satellite Radio,
and many newspapers and magazines.
