Sacred Harp tune "Abernethy"
I wrote this tune in early December 2014 and named it in honor of F. E. Abernethy, for the work he did in writing about and recording information about Sacred Harp in East Texas. It has (1.3) because this is the third iteration. I originally wrote it in 3/2 time and changed it to 4/4 to make it a little more "folksy". I also made a few minor changes in the harmony based on some suggestions by others.
