A new approach to harmonic analysis on the unit sphere in ${{\mathbf {R}}^{d + 1}}$ is given, closer in form to Fourier analysis on ${{\mathbf {R}}^d}$ than the usual development in orthonormal polynomials. Singular integrals occur in the transform formulae. The results generalize to symmetric space.
