The Humble Heart: 33 Shaker Tunes by Collins and Zanetti

The Humble Heart is a lovely collection of 33 Shaker Tunes arranged for mountain dulcimer by Bill Collins and Nina Zanetti. A learned and informative book, the volume is a worthy addition to the small bibliography of Shaker music for mountain dulcimer. The authors provide a list of publications and recordings in their introduction, Zanetti included Shaker tunes in her Glories Immortal hymn collection, and Collins previously published another collection of Shaker tunes. So the reader/player engaging The Humble Heart is in the hands of good guides to the enchanting world of Shaker music. The mountain dulcimer with its modal roots and Shaker music are a great match. This book takes you there.

About Humble Heart

I was a little disappointed when I received the book but it was my fault because i was expecting a book of duets. However after playing with different tunings and the capo I am really enjoying this book. I also love the printed section- very informative.
