Amish, Mennonite and Brethren Singing
Place: Garden Spot Village, New Holland PA
It was a great experience and opportunity for us to record the singing of Amish, Mennonite and Brethren groups at "Music in Worship", organized by Mr. David Sauder, and hosted by Garden Spot Village and Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society.
It is always so interesting to see similarities and differences between various types of Anabaptist music - Old Order Amish, Mennonite, Brethren, Ephrata Cloister Chorus, and Lined-out hymnody tradition in Kentucky and Virginia area.
These have same origin, and are the music of hope, sung for generations by "refugees" from persecution in Europe.
We would like to thank David Sauder for giving us such a precious opportunity.
