2 in harmony ADD/Origins: Seek and Ye Shall Find (21) RE: Seek and ye shall find. 21 Nov 01


Learned this song recently in a workshop by Helen Schneyer. She's been making great music for a long time. This song is on her CD Somber,Sacred & Silly. I'm planning to sing it in upcoming concert. Apparently there are many slightly different verses of this traditional song,"sung in both Black & White congregations."(liner notes) "Printings of this song can be found...in 1887 in Jubilee and Plantation Songs...Also published in 1901 in 'Cabin & Plantation Songs as Sung by the Hampton Students." Recommend entire CD. I believe it is available from Folk Legacy. Thanks for the verses I didn't know.
