Sacred Harp is about the joy of singing together - in four-part harmony, loudly and powerfully. We sing without an audience, without rehearsal, without director from the tunebook »The Sacred Harp«. It was first published in 1844 in the American South and is the most popular collection of songs using the shape note style of notation - a system that makes it easier to sing after notes. By the way, »Sacred Harp« has nothing to do with harp music: instead it is a metaphor for the human voice.
While temporarily being nearly extinct, the Sacred Harp tradition is currently experiencing a worldwide revival. Today, Sacred Harp singings do not only take place in the US, but also in many different locations throughout Europe. Come join us!
Group membership is non-binding and entirely free of charge. Anyone is welcome to come and listen. Although we do encourage our visitors to sing from the outset – because it is more fun and the quickest way to learn – no one is obliged to do so.
