about

Northern Hamrony's autumn 2011 tour, led by Larry Gordon and Patty Cuyler, included two weeks in residence rehearsing in Corsica followed by three weeks in France, Switzerland and Germany, and a month touring in the UK. This dynamic album features traditional and contemporary American shape-note music, Jubilee gospel quartet songs from the early 20th century, a set of late 16th and 17th century sacred pieces, and traditional polyphonies from South Africa, Georgia, Macedonia and Corsica.
