Our thanks to this church for allowing us to use their lovely facility.
Although Virtual Sings are very different they are still a great deal of fun and a good way to enjoy Shape Note Music. If you are not a Phoenix singer but still want to join our sings on the second Saturdays at 2 PM, contact me at the email listed on the left, Phoenixfasola@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
You must have the log on information to join in our virtual sing. Log on info will only be sent out by email once you have contacted me.
Why are we starting an hour early? We will need to take a break every 40 minutes, and also I think it will take some time for users to get used to this format. This is why our sing is from 2 - 5 PM this Saturday, 5-9-2020.
Here are several sites and resources:
Sacredharpbremen.org is a site that allows you to play just your part and learn songs. It is a German site but on the home page, click 'English" and then 'Lieder'. The songs are listed in numerical order. The parts are done robotically, still you can follow in the book and learn the part fairly easily. No book? Click on the link 'Notes' at the bottom of the parts player.
That will take you to the song as it appears in the Sacred Harp book.

Due to Covid-19 we are holding virtual sings. The Second Saturday of each month from 2 - 5 PM. You must have log in information to join the sing. Please email me to request this information at email@example.com Purchase of Sacred Harp song book also available for $25.00.
There are several resources to help you learn to sing. Check these out.
This site has a computer generated model that will sing through all the songs in the 1991 edition of the commonly used songbook, Sacred Harp, by Dennison. The site is in German, however the songs are listed by title and number and sung in English, a wonderful on line resource.
For Moble Apple devices only, this app called FasolaMix is a great resource. It allows you to mute the other parts and practice you own or hear all at once. Although it has a limited number of songs, it is adding to them continually. It is also based on the 1991 edition of Dennison's Sacred Harp songbook. There is a cost, the app is $14.99 however I believe well worth it.
Attending a sing and just practicing is the best way to learn. Our sings are non-judgmental and based on having fun in the experience. We are happy to run parts and no one is an expert, we are all there to enjoy the songs and each other.
You can find a local sing as you travel and attend. Go to fasola.org to locate a sing near you. You can also find resources, such as a link to the Smithsonian Institute singing guide for shape note singing, the movie 'Awake My Soul' about Sacred Harp.
