FSGW Shape Note Singing

FSGW sponsors monthly singings of early American hymns, anthems, and fuguing tunes in unaccompanied four-part harmony, every fourth Sunday afternoon (except in December). The main tunebooks are The Sacred Harp (1991) and The Shenandoah Harmony (2013). There are over two hours of singing, fueled by a potluck dinner break. All are welcome to come and sing or listen for as long as desired. Loaner tunebooks are available.
