Canberra Shape Note Singers

This is an open singing session for all ages. A desire to sing is all that is required of participants. We sing from the The Denison version hymnal called The Sacred Harp. Loaner copies are available. We sing around a hollow square in 4 parts. Bass Tenor Alto and Trebles without instruments.

This style is considered an American Folk Gospel Tradition that is spreading around the world with each singing group independent of each other. The music notes are in the shape of a square, triangle, circle and diamond - this is why it is called shape note singing.
