Meetinghouse Treasures CD

Harmonies Workshop

  • 1495


Early German hymns sung in Lutheran, Reformed, Mennonite and other churches in the 1700s and early 1800s. The recording includes 21 hymns, a few of which are translated and known today, such as "Sleepers, Awake" and "Out of the Depths." All the hymns are still used by several Old Order Mennonite groups. An informal anonymous Old Order ensemble sings them on this CD to slow tunes derived from German chorales, ancient folk tunes, or from later tunes of American hymnody. (21 songs. CD. Harmonies Workshop, 2009.)
