Renewed interest in Sacred Harp

Sacred Harp Singing

This short piece of about 7 minutes shown on PGTC (Pop Goes the Culture) is "about the renewed interest in Sacred Harp singing among younger singers." On one occasion narrator the says, "The strange sound couldn't survive out of context. Most of these voices would get booed off of American Idol in a second." Well, we don't all sound so bad. But the little documentary is pretty good and fairly accurate.
