Sacred Harp Singing is four part a cappella harmony singing. The tunes are notated in four different “shape notes” - Fa (a triangle), Sol (an oval), La (a rectangle) and Mi (a diamond) - designed to aid sight-reading. Anyone is welcome to come along, whether you have experience or not, whether you think you can sing or read music or not, and whatever you believe in - The Sacred Harp is a hymn book, but the singers here are “of any faith or none”. We are an informal group of all ages and backgrounds, and no regular commitment is needed. You can come and go to a singing as you please, and come along as often or as little as you like- though singing the shapes becomes easier the more you do it. Sacred Harp is social singing- it is not performance music and there are no rehearsals. We sing together for ourselves in the moment, more akin to a folk session than a choir.’
