The beauty and grace of Shaker culture is reflected in these authentic songs, rendered by members of the United Society of Shakers of Sabbathday Lake, Maine -- one of the few surviving Shaker communities in Maine. This collection of 40 19th century Shaker spirituals (including ''Tis the Gift to Be Simple') sung in traditional unaccompanied style is the only album available of the Shakers themselves singing their unique music.
