Haruo especially see my latest blog on the latest local sacred Harp singing. Robert Chambless 165 facebook pictures tell the best story.

Since Stephen invoked Robert Chambless's name, I thought I'd post this link to an article about him. He and his wife are great folks.

This has been a fascinating read from which I am learning a lot. Thanks.

A week from now will be what is billed as the first Uppsala All Day Sacred Harp Singing in Uppsala, Sweden (but it will actually be a full weekend, so it's more like a "convention" than an "all-day"; I would call it a "double all-day". Perhaps in anticipation of this event, Swedish Radio has put out a very interesting article/set of interviews mostly I think with New England shapenoters. A lot of it's in Swedish (it's so cute how they say "Massachusetts"!) but enough is in English that I think it's well worth the listening even if (like me) your Swedish is "rusty, ya sure, ya betcha".

Yesterday our copy of Mother Felicitas Curti's recent book, "The Chord of Longing: My Life as Atheist, Marxist, Mother, Nun" arrived. Mrs. H. has first dibs reading it, but I look forward eagerly to my turn, and to posting a review.

Great Cooper Book Singing in Dutton Alabama

Postby Stephen Fox » Tue Oct 03, 2017 1:00 pm

WAs a virgin experience for me in Jackson County. Sang Down to the River to Pray in a Sacred Harp setting for the first time.

Food was out of this world. Had great chats with singers who came down from Canada, Bard College in Upstate New York and Brown University. The Bard and Brown singers have sung in the company of Kiri Miller, whose book Traveling Home is the definitive work.

Last night I received from Georgia a shapenote transcription of a tune from Fiji, which I hope to use in Sankta Harmonio. Image It's in the unusual meter 7.7.5.7.7.5; if you have any good texts in that meter to suggest, send 'em on down! Right now I'm on my way to a Shenandoah Harmony singing.

For the Sacred Harp lover, or the merely curious, Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg's dissertation is now available online: Folklore's Filter: Race, Place, and Sacred Harp Singing
"This dissertation examines the impact of folklorization on Sacred Harp's associations with race and place."

Thanks, Robert, I downloaded it. May even read it, as parts of it may be pertinent to what I'm trying to pull together in Sankta Harmonio.
