West Gallery singing is wonderful English church music with bunches of(often brass & free reed) instruments, great harmonies and a robust singing style that is somewhat reminiscent, energy-wise, of Sacred Harp singing in this country (although the harmonies lean toward foursquare thirds, fourths, and fifths rather than the fuguing modal stuff of Sacred Harp). I love it, and Bruce is a terrific leader. Jerry, you and Ruth would like this session, I predict. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
