Boston Area Monthly Shape-Note Singing

Our new location is in the Parish Hall at Church of the Redeemer in Chestnut Hill.

We sing primarily from The Sacred Harp, 1991 edition, and The Norumbega Harmony. We have books you can use, or buy a copy to take home.

You've heard it on the soundtrack to Cold Mountain, this Boston area singing has been going on for decades. Also covered by WBUR's Here-and-Now, Sacred Harp special on 2004 January 12
