Worum es bei uns geht

Sacred Harp is a different kind of singing. It's loud. It's got shapes. In Hamburg, as is typical of Sacred Harp groups in Germany, singers are a motley crew of Germans and Ausländer who enjoy powerful sounds as well as each other's company.

Here, have a listen. This is at a Sacred Harp convention in Ireland.

Welcome, welcome every guest [24]

The Hamburg Sacred Harp group, which was formed in August 2013, meets every Tuesday, 7:30-8:30 in the Anglican Church of St Thomas Becket on Zeughausmarkt 22, 20459 Hamburg. 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.

Come and join us every Tuesday at 7:30pm at the "Englische Kirche"

Sacred Harp Singing @ Ökumenisches Forum HafenCity

Benötigt einen Veranstaltungsort

Come join us for some singing! Our meetings are on Tuesdays 7:30-9:00pm. This week we will be singing in the chapel at the Ökumenisches Forum Hafencity (Shanghaiallee 12, 20457 Hamburg). All are welcome, no experience necessary.

Sacred Harp is a different kind of singing. It's loud. It's got shapes (square, triangle, circle, diamond) and each shape gets a sound (la, fa, so, mi). The songs are in English, but it doesn't matter if you can't keep up with the text – most of us can't, either. In Hamburg, as is typical of Sacred Harp groups in Germany, singers are a motley crew of Germans and Non-Germans/Internationals/Ausländer/Other who enjoy powerful sounds as well as each other's company.

What exactly is sacred harp singing? You can read all about it on wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Harp
The music originated as protestant music in 18th century New England. That being said, we are a non-religious group; truely all are welcome. Our suggestion, if you are at all curious: come by, check it out, if it doesn't float your boat, you will have at least experienced something new/unique/unexpected!

In addition to those of you who are visiting us via Meetup (great!), there are about 8-10 singers each week who do not sign up on Meetup -- the regulars, you might say. That's not to stop you from RSVP-ing, of course.
