I am happy to announce the first issue of the Sacred Harp Publishing Company Newsletter—a web-based publication that will feature items such as trip reports from Sacred Harp conventions and singing schools, short biographical pieces on Sacred Harp singers, other news of interest to Sacred Harp singers, and reprints of memorable articles from the old Newsletter the Pub. Co. published in the 1980s and ’90s. This issue includes accounts of singing schools held last fall in Germany and Northern Ireland, an update on the forthcoming enlarged Georgian Harmony featuring the music of Raymond C. Hamrick, a reflection by Karen Rollins on her father, Lonnie L. Rogers, an article from 1985 on the dedication of a historical marker to B. F. White in Hamilton, Georgia, digitized copies of the first three issues of the National Sacred Harp Newsletter, and a couple of other items.

We hope you find these articles interesting and enjoyable, but regardless of what you think, we want your feedback! There is a space where you can comment on any of the articles we publish. We also invite you to write in with news, questions, corrections, and ideas for future articles—whether you want to write them yourself or not!

We plan to publish this newsletter regularly, so be on the look out for our second issue in the summer.

Vol. 1, No. 1 Contents

You can find each of the articles individually at the links above, or browse them all by visiting the Newsletter’s home page.

    I’m glad see this and want to be sure I continue to get notified when new pieces are published. Is there a link to sign up?

    • Hi Judy,

      There are two ways to make sure you are notified of any new postings to the Sacred Harp Publishing Company Newsletter. We will announce any new pieces published on the Fasola singings list as well as via our Facebook page (if you are on Facebook, you could “Like” our page to receive notifications of future articles). We hope these are convenient ways for singers to stay connected!

      Best,
      Jesse
