The Boston Globe printed an article this January for their weekly Spiritual Life column, profiling the second Sunday Sacred Harp singing I help organize at Christ Church Unity in Brookline, MA.

The article, written by Rich Barlow, who attended January’s singing, explains the format of a Sacred Harp singing through the lens of the different faith backgrounds of members of our local singing community. The article follows how this music has brought us together for singing, fellowship, and in recognition of our common spirituality and religiosity.

I am quoted in the article as are two other Boston-area singers. You can read the article on the Boston Globe‘s web site. It’s title: In song, different faiths find harmony
