Brooklyn Shapenote Singing, August 12, 2018. St. Paul’s Church, Carroll Gardens.
Singing from The Sacred Harp, Denson 1991 (SH) and Cooper 2012 (CB) Revisions, and from The Shenandoah Harmony (ShH).

Present: Myles, Sam, John, Terry R., Gary, Stefani, Elsa, Nancy B., Sarah L., Molly, Nathan, Patrick, Carol, Jon, Alice W., Lisa B., nbm. New: Chris (friend of Myles’s), Ariana M., Daniel M., Tolo B., Louis B., Matthew; visiting: Hal K. We collected $48. And twelve, well thirteen including Alice’s daughter, of us had a very jolly ice cream social afterwards. Thanks to everyone for your contributions.

The first two songs this month were exactly the same as last month, and last month’s fourth song is this month’s third, all called by the same people. Cliché, or good model? In any case I promise to change it up next month. What about SH 188, is that a good opener? 44 songs: SH 10; CB 12; ShH 22
