Together as One Hymn Choir

Few regions in the Southeast retain the vitality of the hymn choir, or common meter, tradition like York County. Emerging in the 1700s from English Calvinist worship and African ritual practices, hymn choir traditions took root in slave communities in South Carolina. Today, the practice of lining out hymns through unaccompanied congregational singing is still alive and is embodied in the Together As One Hymn Choir of York County.
