about

Live recordings from seven different summer 2000 concert tours by Village Harmony groups. The overall musical programming reflects VH's commitment to exploring music from community singing traditions throughout the world. Each summer we put together new combinations of leaders for the different sessions who bring music reflecting their particular specialties. Participants are frequently transformed by the experience and a high proportion of them return year after year, helping to transmit the exhilarating Village Harmony culture.

Track Name: Idumea
And am I born to die?
To lay this body down!
And must my trembling spirit fly
Into a world unknown?

Waked by the trumpet sound,
I from my grave shall rise;
And see the Judge with glory crowned,
And see the flaming skies!
Track Name: Hallowell
I thought when someone died
the spirit flew over furthest field
Now I see death will leave behind
A scrap of light, a broken smile
The remnants by which I might be healed

The dead lift me up
In brightest sky, the clouds below me race
The dead lift me up
I see you face to face

Held high by these strong hands
feeling the wind, I am born again
The mountain flowers, the desert sands
surround me now, comfort me now
In death or dreaming I find my kin

Our voices shake in song
for memories we have long endured
Though this begins to make us strong
(the combing through of shreds of love)
it is through living that we are cured
