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, September 9, 2018 — notes

Or, as it’s formally known, the Joe Beasley Singing. At 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).  Please let me know if I have mis-transcribed your song — several times I had to say, “Wait, she wouldn’t lead that, what number is it really?”  (Once “she” was me.)

Present: Jon, Patrick D., Paul, Elsa, Stefani, Jamie, Colman, Mary Jane, Sarah, Jasmine, Molly, nbm. New: Helen, Jenny, Margaret, Emily; new-ish, Lisa R. We collected $30.

As noted last month, determined not to start with SH 48t this time, so I called 52t as our opener. Some duplicates from last month: TRUSTING, WILEY, PALMETTO, and CLEANSING FOUNTAIN from the CB, MARTYRS, STAR IN THE EAST, and BALM IN GILEAD from the Shen. Less frequently heard (here) songs that I really enjoyed included ShH 218t REDEEMING GRACE and CB 133 JOHN 4:14.

Total: 40 songs: SH 12; CB 10; ShH 18
