Amber -

It is not a choir. Sacred Harp singing is done by groups of people who come together to sign the songs that they love. They sing to honor God and for themselves and each other. You can find more information, and locations of Sacred Harp singings, at www.fasola.org You say you are a Southerner, so you are in luck. There are Sacred Harp singings all over the South.

Being an Alabamian from the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, one who can proudly sing shape-notes, I'm pretty familiar with what we call "singings." 4 - 6 part harmonies are Dreamy! The louder, the better. Sign me up for Tenor or first or second Alto.

That was awesome amber. I am sure there is one meeting in my own backyard and I don't even know it. :) I wonder if Matthew would go with me?

Amber, look at www.fasola.org, a website devoted to the Sacred Harp and and shape note singing. There you can see where singings are happening all over the US, the UK & Canada.
