Notes

First music-publishing effort made by Funk, the legendary shape-note singing master; title shares four tunes with Ananias Davisson's Kentucky Harmony (1816.084), also published in Harrisonburg about the same time as this album, though targeting English-speakers rather than the German-speakers served by Funk's offering. Both were stylistically challenged the following year by Wheeler Gillet's Virginia Sacred Minstrel (1817.096), which sought to turn church music from the fugue-influenced tunes of Funk & Davisson to more melodious ones.
