When the “footnotes” were removed from the Original Sacred Harp tune book, the Board of Directors of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company desired to have a companion book written which would provide information about the tune writers and hymn writers for compositions in the book. It took longer than originally anticipated to have such a book written.
It is with a sense of joy and relief that the Directors of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company can now say: “The companion book is complete and ready to ship!”
The Makers of the Sacred Harp by Warren Steel with Dick Hulan is in GA and orders which have been received will be mailed today, Friday, November 19. This is a great day for our company a definitive work that tells the story of the Sacred Harp and the 1991 Edition is available.
Of course, the tune and hymn writers featured in our book also have compositions in other shape note books so this work will also be a useful reference for those tune books.
To order yourself a copy of the book visit our ordering page.
PayPal is available so the need to write checks and address envelopes for payment are over!
Many of the Directors of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company will also have copies of the book at singings and conventions if you wish to obtain one in that manner.
Thanks for waiting for this book. The wait is over!!
