About United Sacred Harp Musical Association
Alan Lomax and George Pullen Jackson first documented the Sacred Harp singing tradition in a 1942 Alabama recording for the Library of Congress Archive of American Folk Song. In 1959, Lomax returned to Alabama to record the United Sacred Harp Musical Association Singing Convention. These digitally remastered re-releases reveal a genre steeped in the cultural politics of a nation continuously reinventing itself in the face of an uneasy social past and an uncertain future.
