This recording documents an extraordinary concert, intended to capture the spirit of shape note conventions, which are still held today in many parts of the country. Invited choirs joined the Master Chorale to perform Wesley, Idumea and Sweet Prospect, surrounding the audience at the Kennedy Center in Washington.

Shape-note singing is a distinctively American tradition that is enjoying a revival. Born from the desire to invigorate congregational singing, the shape-note tradition created its own musical notation, a robust singing style and a substantial collection of hymnody.

"This release...offers a fascinating glimpse into the origins of American choral music, specifically the shape-note tradition...The results are a good bit more refined-sounding than pure shape-note singing, especially with such an accomplished, rich-sounding group as the Master Chorale of Washington. This group can sing just about anything well. There are not many collections of this kind...If American choral traditions mean anything to you, then you must have this [CD]."
