The Colored Sacred Harp

Audio snippets: 

The Colored Sacred Harp 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.
