The ~17th Swannanoa Valley Singing

St. James Episcopal Church Parish Hall
Black Mountain, Buncombe County, North Carolina

Saturday, November 13, 2010

(~ because no one remembers when Willie Israel started the singings at Highland Farms)

All selections from The Christian Harmony (‘Carolina book’, 1873 facsimile, 1994 reprint) or The Christian Harmony ('Alabama book', Deason-Parris revision, 2002 printing) (these are tagged with `AL'). Leaders often led two songs at a time.

Joe Holbert greeted the singers and opened the singing with a Moment of Silent Prayer.
