EDITORS’ NOTES

The Coen brothers’ rollicking, Depression-era road movie reintroduced America to the beauty of its folk traditions, from the playful, lullaby-like melodies of “Big Rock Candy Mountain” to the eerie, minor-key delta doom of “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues” and the muscular but sorrowful chain gang chants of “Po Lazarus.” Dan Tyminski’s impeccably robust “I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow” makes the ancient standard shine like a polished brass bell, while Ralph Stanley’s show-stopping reading of “O Death” creates spine-tingling synergy between present and past.
