 Our first half hour will be devoted to learning how shape note music works and enjoying parts, principles and each other.  We look forward to another fun sing.  We had a great time with several new singers added.  A great sound. Light refreshments will be served.  A fun and accepting place.  

Not a singer?  No problem, just come to listen or learn.

We have loaner books so you can follow along.  Get a peek into our historical past by reading along the lyrics that were so meaningful to those who first built this country.  

Resources abound

Here are several sites and resources:

Fasola.org

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.  

Check out Sacred Harp Lyrics at @antioch277 on Twitter.  

Check out FasolaMix for iOS mobile devices at the app store.

Resources

There are several resources to help you learn to sing.  Check these out.  

Sacredharpbremen.org

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. 

Check out this IOS app

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.  

Singing is the best way to learn

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.  

Are you traveling?

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.
