The hymn sing was organized by the Harmonia Sacra Society, a non-profit organization in the Shenandoah Valley, dedicated to preserving and promoting the legacy of Joseph Funk, a Southern shaped-note hymnal publisher, singing school instructor, and publisher of the hymnal, “Harmonia Sacra.” The recording was made by Raymond Brunk, founder of “Gospel Sunrise,” an organization that distributes religious cassette tapes to truck stops.
