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 singing June 2019, notes (sans names)

I can’t claim I didn’t have time, but I didn’t get around to filling in the tune names. I’ll come back to it. Meanwhile, have fun seeing how many you can name!

Brooklyn Shapenote Singing, June 14, 2019. St. Paul’s Church, Carroll Gardens. Singing from The Sacred Harp, Denson 1991 (SH) and Cooper 2012 (CB) Editions, and from The Shenandoah Harmony (ShH).
The room we sing in is handsome, with its Gothick leaded casements, and sounds good. But it’s a little dim, especially in winter and in the center of the square, since the elaborate chandeliers are spaced close to the edge, and there were quite a few bulbs out on top of that. Several months ago I mentioned it in a note to the rector, but nothing was done. So this month I brought some bulbs. And Paul brought some bulbs. And Myles brought some bulbs. And meanwhile, the bulbs had been replaced!

Present: Paul, Sarah, Elsa, Nancy B., Molly, Geoff, Brandon, Gwen, Jaime, Ben, Myles, Annie, Jon, Jenny, Carol, Alice W. New: Louis, Chris G., Gabe; Max Grafe’s friends Chelsea and Tim. Visiting: Jimmy from Philadelphia

Collected: $63. Thanks for your generosity.
