Note Singing

Note singing is a 7-shape gospel tradition that is practiced to this day by African American singers in Georgia. The singing is expressive and the repertoire consists of newer songs and styles than in the Sacred Harp tradition. Singers each carry a collection of books and photocopies to singings. One of the books used is the Church of God Church Hymnal (1951), available from Pathway Press.

You can get a taste of the style from these videos on YouTube:

Here is the schedule for the United Note Singers and Associated Note Singers for 2017. You can also find these singings on our upcoming singings page. Singings are at 2:00 PM unless otherwise noted. Click the link for each singing to open a Google Map to it.
