Notes

Tracks recorded in January 2002 on Nabogoya Hill and in Mbale except: track 2 recorded in Namatumba; tracks 3 & 17 recorded in Nasenyi; tracks 7, 8 & 18 recorded in Nangolo; tracks 9, 10 & 22 recorded in Namanyonyi. Track 22 recorded in 2000.

Recording information from the liner notes:
"For these recording sessions I rented a thatched hut on the grounds of the Mount Elgon Hotel, on the outskirts of Mbale. Here we recorded the liturgical music and music of celebration accompanied by keyboard and guitar. As noted, other selections were recorded in the villages in which the Abayudaya live. In the field, we recorded on a Sony DAT D-10 Pro using a Shure VP 88 microphone. On the grounds of the Mount Elgon Hotel, we used two Bruel and Kjaer 4011 cardioid microphones, with two Bruel and Kjaer 4006 omni directionals up high to capture ambient room sound. We ran these mikes through a Mackie 1402 VLZ stereo mixer to an Apogee PSX100 coverter to the Sony DAT recorder."
