North Alabama Sacred Harp Convention 2009

One of the best experiences on earth is to join in with a Sacred Harp singing. The National Convention every year in Birmingham is a little taste of heaven. REALLY! Although it has become more of a recreation, and welcomes singers of all backgrounds, (I spotted a couple of yarmulkes in this year's crowd, and once had dinner with a self-described "secular, buddhist, agnostic") it is still one of the most spiritually uplifting events of MY yeaar. I've missed a few years but, after getting back into this delightful musical swim, I plan to only allow a mega-disaster to keep me from future sings. Some friends and I are going to try and get a group together to sing locally once a month.
