Cold Mountain sample

I forgot to give you a you-tube example. Here's shape note singing from the movie Cold Mountain. This movie was almost filmed in Wilkesboro, but there were too many power lines over the mountain skies, so they went to Eastern Europe. Darn. Anyway, the story from the US civil war was set in North Carolina in a fabulous book by Charles Frazier of Asheville. Here is another tract of shape note singing from the movie.
