WELCOME, JOIN US!
Our group is for people interested in shape note singing in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
Shape note singing is an American, a cappella choral tradition with roots that stretch back into the 18th century. We sing four part harmony, printed with shaped note heads which are designed to help with sight reading music.
Characterized by open harmonies and a raw, powerful sound, these tunes speak of death and love and powerful forces. All religious affiliations (and un-affiliations) are welcome to join us. We sing for each other and the joy of singing. There is no audience and no director. This music designed for participation, rather than performance.
