THE GOLDEN HARVEST: A SHAKER CLASSIC

Golden Harvest CDJust in time for the holidays comes this 10th anniversary CD reissue of The Golden Harvest, the now-classic collaboration between The Boston Camerata and the Shaker family of Sabbathday Lake, Maine. Widely praised at its initial release, this program, recorded on location by Camerata’s soundmaster-in-residence David Griesinger, contains many transcriptions from original manuscripts at the Shaker Library, including many beautiful songs brought to light and sung again for the first time in 150 years.


Our photo, taken just before Thanksgiving, shows Joel Cohen and the Shakers, at their Maine home, celebrating the reissue. They, and we, invite you to join!
