Sacred Harp hymns are 18th century spirituals with music that is written with notes of varying shapes according to their location on the scale. It is always sung four part a capella, and has a strongly layered, harmonic sound. Everyone is welcome, no experience necessary, loaner books available.

We will sing from both the 1991 Sacred Harp and the Shenandoah Harmony.
