Volume II, No. 1, Fall 1974
[Note from web editor: this section refers to the pressed record vinyl insert]
First introduced in Volume I, No. 2, Music of the Ozarks is presented
as a supplement to our stories about music. Words just cannot adequately
capture music. Hence, this soundsheet. We spent many hours on this--listening,
criticizing, deciding, editing. From the hours of tape we had, we picked
the best twenty minutes. (See page 4 for Singing with So-Fa Syllables and
page 22 for Old-Time Ozark Square Dancing.)
Shape Note Singing at Lee's Summit Church of Christ
These selections were taped on the last two nights of a recent singing school. They are sung by the entire congregation except for a select double quartet, and the chromatic scale. All songs but one were led by Richard Nichols.
