Same Notes, Different Styles

The United Shape Note Singers and Haralson County Gospel singers perform “I’ll Fly Away” and “I’m Living in Canaan Now.”  Though both groups are using the maroon-covered Church Hymnal for their singings, there are noticeable differences in the translation of the notes.  “I’ll Fly Away,” as sung by the United Shape Note Singers, has a minor-key, almost bluesy feel.
