The largest collection of recorded Shaker music
available anywhere!

 

  

 

 

 

For the 40th anniversary of his first published Shaker music research in 1974, Roger Lee Hall, has prepared this Deluxe DVD-ROM playable on your computer with Microsoft Word and Mp3 music files.

This multi-media collection covers his research and many publications over many years from his first research in 1972 up to the present day. It covers over two centuries of Shaker music from the 1780s to the 1990s.

Included are many Shaker spirituals which he has discovered and edited for performance, such as these songs: "Blended Together" and "Gentle Words"; and these hymns: "Celestial Praises" and "The Humble Heart."

He also has written about important Shaker composers, such as Elder Issachar Bates ("Come Life, Shaker Life"), and Elder Joseph Brackett ("Simple Gifts").

This collection is essential for any music library or Shaker museum, and for researchers dealing with religious or folk music material, plus those writing a scholarly paper, article, book, planning a concert, or producing a recording.

The DVD-ROM was originally published in 2012 and was revised in 2014 with over 100 additional items.

It contains a massive amount of information with 475 files in 60 folders and over 150 music examples. Included are: sheet music of Shaker songs and hymns, many pictures in image galleries, 3 video programs, plus two bonus features with an audio album of Shaker music arrangements and video of a rare black & white television program from 1966.
