Awake, My Soul - The Story Of The Sacred Harp [2 DVDs]
Formats and Pricing

Item currently unavailable.

Description 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. Matt Hinton: producer, director, editor Erica Hinton: co-director Jim Lauderdale: narrator Mac Powell: executive producer Tai Anderson: executive producer Featuring: Hugh McGraw, Raymond Hamrick, Richard Delong, Rodney Ivey, Warren Steel, Jim Carnes, Joyce Walton, Judy Caudle, Elene Stovall, Charlene Wallace, Terry Wootten, Ted Mercer, Jeff Sheppard
