It certainly *does* appear on the album; it's "Idumea," as done by the Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church. It certainly *is* stunning [full disclusure; I'm a Sacred Harp singer myself, know many of the singers, and have sung at that church], and the album actually helps one appreciate it the more--because you can hear the words!
