Kelly Macklin and Erin Fulton review...

We are appreciative of the kind words of advanced readers of Strong Songs of the Dead:

"Thom's book is an authentic and emotional journey into shape note singing. He provides a realistic interpretation of a very personal and profound practice which reflects my own experience of this music. Thom has a writer's eye to pounce on the strongest lyrics which are powerful and full of meaning. I loved this book."

Kelly Macklin, editor, Shenandoah Harmony

"Metzger writes vividly and imaginatively while making his own eclectic sense of an experience at first intensely foreign to him.”
—E. Fulton, Hymnologist
