This chapter examines the effects of the inclusion of two Sacred Harp songs in the film Cold Mountain, an event which it suggests never changed the fundamental practices of Sacred Harp singing more than momentarily. Though some were raised to brief prominence by the media, they still emphasized the participatory, inclusive nature of Sacred Harp. The chapter contends that singers were able to extract lasting strength for Sacred Harp by pushing for publicity and creating opportunities for expansion, but otherwise emerged unscathed.
