Join us for four-part harmony singing in Sheffield city centre, at our regular monthly Third Wednesday singing at the Sentinel pub.

We'll sing from the Denson 1991 edition of the Sacred Harp. Loaner books will be available if you don't have one.

Sacred Harp is four-part harmony a capella singing where all voices are welcome. The Sacred Harp tunebook was first published in Hamilton, Georgia in 1844, and today is used at community singings from Tokyo to Oslo. The musical notation of the Sacred Harp is based around four shaped note heads, shown above, and the practice is also known as «shape note singing.»

This tradition is democratic and egalitarian — anyone can choose a song out of the book and the group will do our best to sing it together. The singing is participatory, not perfomative, so we sing with each other, for each other.

Beginners very welcome! Come learn some songs!
