Weekly Sacred Harp Singing
Come join us for some singing! Our meetings are on Tuesdays 8-10pm. All are welcome, no experience necessary. As usual, there will also be tea. 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 expats who enjoy powerful sounds as well as each other's company. Even though it looks like we are a small number of people attending, usually there are at least 10 of us – many regulars do not sign up for the event on Meetup. That's not to stop you from RSVP-ing, of course.

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 at 20:00 hrs 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 8pm at the "Englische Kirche"
