Awake, My Soul

2006 Rated NR 1hr 15m

Journey to the Deep South and take in the haunting sound of Sacred Harp singing -- an unusual form of a cappella that embraces "shape-note" singing -- in this absorbing documentary, which also traces the fascinating history of the genre. Seen nationwide on public television, the program represents the culmination of seven years of painstaking work by directors Matt and Erica Hinton. Country singer Jim Lauderdale narrates.
