about

Present Joys brings Dave Douglas and Uri Caine together for an intimate but exploratory outing inspired by the Sacred Harp tradition. The pair take on four pieces from the shape-note tunebooks as well as several new Douglas compositions undertaken in the same vein.

All compositions and arrangements by Dave Douglas (Dave Douglas Music / BMI) except:
"Soar Away" by A. M. Cagle (Sacred Harp Publishing Company, Inc.)
"Bethel" by Anonymous (PD)
"Present Joys" by A. M. Cagle (PD)
"Supplication" by Floyd M. Frederick (Sacred Harp Publishing Company, Inc.)
"Confidence" by Oliver Holden (PD)

The Sacred Harp, Ye Olde New-England Psalm-Tunes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion: each collection is a window into a distant musical era. Reprinted numerous times since the 17th century, they preserve a uniquely original American musical idiom. Truly American treasures, these "tunebooks" form the basic repertoire for countless musical groups and keep the tradition of "shape-note" singing alive.

Thanks to Peter Schumann, Elka Schumann, John Bell, Trudy Cohen, Linda Elbow, Nabila Schwab, and Emily Anderson of Bread and Puppet Theater for introducing me to the music of The Sacred Harp. Thanks also to Suzannah Kincannon, Becca Stevens, Josh Roseman, Angela Morris, and to my brother, sisters and extended family for their love and support.
