First observe of how many Notes compass the Tune is. Next, the place of your first Note; and how many Notes above & below that: so as you may begin the Tune of your first Note as the rest may be sung in the compass of your and the peoples voices, without Squeaking above, or Grumbling below.

Brooklyn (Joe Beasley) Second Sunday singing, September 9, 2012

At St. Paul’s Church, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, New York.  Singing from THE SACRED HARP, 1991 Denson edition, and other books (including the Cooper Book, 2006 Edition [CB], and others). The calls go round the room in this singing.

A small but avid singing, with a number of other-book songs.  Mary Ellen even had us singing seven shapes, with two songs from the Christian Harmony (CH) (she carefully provided us with a cheat sheet for the extra shapes).

Present: Terry, Bruce, Nancy B., Mary Ellen, Ann, Jon, Patrick, Abby, Ezra, Dorinda, nbm

    if anyone liked Gospel Waves enough to want a 4 shape version (it was originally in the JL White Revision)…let me know. John Plunkett
