Note Singing

This page has not been updated since 2019.

Note singing is a 7-shape gospel tradition that is practiced to this day by Black 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 their 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 2019 schedule for the United Note Singers, the Associated Note Singers, and the Middle Georgia and Griffin Note Singers. 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.
