“Covered By the Blood”
From the CD, Covered By the Blood (2011)
Available at CDBaby
Over an instrumental blend accented mainly by organ, piano, and the distinct twang of a pedal steel guitar, the Southern Harmoneers tell the blessed story of being “Covered By the Blood.” This mid-tempo southern gospel song has nuances of the hymn, “Will The Lord Remember Me?” and will work beautifully for both male choir and quartet voicings.
The Southern Harmoneers, whose arrangements are somewhat similar to the Jackson Southernaires and the Dixie Hummingbirds, earned top honors this year in Ruston, LA’s Dixie Horizon Entertainer Search. Current group members are carrying on the legacy of family and friends who began singing in 1940’s as the Golden Jubilees Quartet.
