Solo Shapenote Singing? Geht nicht!

Hier ist mein bescheidener Versuch, um zu sehen, ob jemand im Ruhrgebiet Interesse an einer Gruppe anzuschließen hat, der amerikanischen “Shapenote” Hymnen aus dem Sacred Harp Gesangbuch singen. Wenn Sie sich dafür interessieren, bitte schreiben Sie eine E-Mail an fasola (at) gmail (dot) com.

This is my humble attempt to see if anyone in in the Ruhrgebiet has an interest in joining a group in the area to sing American shapenote hymns from the Sacred Harp hymnal.  I am an Ami living in Germany who would like to start a group in the Bochum-Essen-Dortmund area, and hope to find some singers who can read English and would like to sing old four-part (acappella) hymns from this old southern tunebook. If you are interested in helping me start a Sacred Harp singing group, please contact me at alosaf1 (at) gmail (dot) com.

  1. If you find a location and get a bunch of people together, the Bremen group is willing and able to travel to Bochum for a Kick-Off-Singing.

    Jawoll! Frankfurt ist auch dabei!

  3. Hi Chris. This is Alison. We met in Frankfurt at the workshop. Glad to see you trying this. Keep me posted and I should be able to come over from OWL for a singing.

    • Hi Alison,

      It’s great to hear from a “native” shapenote singer! I read about your new arrival on your blog just recently…Congratulations!. Thanks also for your offer to come sing with us if I can get a group going. Wir drücken die Daumen….
