Tape Hymns

here's the story straight from the source:

This tape is from April 1987. It is mostly my grandmother and her siblings and their spouses sitting around the living room calling out hymns and playing them. I don't know whose idea it was to record this, or whose tape recorder it was. For almost 20 years it sat in the living room until my mom brought it back for me to put on CD-R. These hymns are unrehearsed and possibly sung from memory. This is what happens when tradition, technology, and spontaneity all come together after a big meal and chill out in a comfy living room with a candy dish, piano, and guitar.

this is primarily here because I think it's pretty interesting. Don't know why.
