Most selections from The Christian Harmony, Carolina (Walker) edition, with a few (as noted) from the 2010 edition.

21, Webster

Don then gave a brief background the The Christian Harmony - wondering how long since these songs were sung in Avery County.

157b, Hallelujah - Zack Allen
Zack took this opportunity to give a report on the Walker Book reprint. The goal is to maintain and preserve Walker's book with the Walker shapes at a price a new singer can reasonably afford. Having the print shop do all the scanning and corrections turns out to be entirely too expensive, so "we" must disassemble a book and scan each page in. Once all that is completed, a .pdf will be created and given to the printer. Sharon Kellam's list of needed corrections may be included as errata. A printed cover is still in the plan.
