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, July 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).

A very enjoyable singing graced with the rare presence of our old friends Eric and Sarah H and new friend Eliza the Baby, and I was thrilled to have so many folks come over afterwards for Ice Cream Social, with upstairs singing and late deck time. I recommend an ice cream party to anyone who wants to spread pleasure among her friends in a child-safe manner. Although we did, of course, have drinks, so. And thanks to everyone for generously managing the door-opening system that will be standard from now on. We will miss Stefani’s FRIENDSHIP here but wish her a wonderful time in grad school. (Does that even make sense? Yes, yes it does.)

Present: Gwen, Geoff, Jenny, Annie, Paul, Ben S-H, Sam, Charles, Nancy B., Stefani, Elsa, Jon, Jasmine, Sarah, Quinn, Jaime, Patrick, Eric, Sarah (and Eliza), Anna, Molly, nbm. As always, corrections welcomed.

Collected: $45, plus $50 for one copy each SH and ShH, of which I’ll save half for our New Edition fund and Myles will sell me a replacement ShH.
