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 Shapenote Singing, April 8, 2018 — Notes

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

Jon, Kevin D., Alice W., and Stefani, if you see this, please check on the songs with questionmarks! And everyone else is welcome to correct me if you are sure you never called any such song as the one I’ve attributed to you; I did a lousy job writing things down, or maybe a lousy job reading my handwriting – either way or both.  

We raised $24. How would you feel if I applied this to a new ShH? (They cost $25.) I also have two books’ worth of funds from books I’ve sold, and a singer ready to contribute for more. I think we’ll invest in another box of six.

Present: Stina, Rebeka, Ben S-H, Sam, Sara L., Sarah L., Stefani, Elsa, Kevin D., Patrick P., Jon, Alanna, Alice W., Lynn, nbm. Visiting: Paul W. from Minnesota and Kim Kleinman.

    I love reading these notes! I think my last call may have been ShH 378t, Sweet Heaven, rather than 318.
