Brooklyn Shapenote Singing, February 11, 2018 — notes

twas I british library

This has nothing whatever to do with the singing, but I thought you would enjoy it, as I do. From the British Library’s playbill collection.

Singing from The Sacred Harp, Denson 1991 (SH) and Cooper 2012 (CB) Revisions, and from The Shenandoah Harmony (ShH).

We raised $44 and tried out the Abilene bar on Court Street and 3rd afterwards.

Present: Stefani, Sarah L., Ezra, Paul, Kevin D., Molly, Ben S-H, Myles, Colman, Solon, Jaime, Mary Jane, Kevin B., Carol, Alice W. New: Jane Lee. As always, let me know if in my haste I have scrawled down the wrong number (or the wrong book!).
