Recording of the Florida-Alabama Progressive Seven Shape Note Singing Convention

Recording of the Florida-Alabama Progressive Seven Shape Note Singing Convention

Date
1980-05-18
Description
Six reel to reel recordings. The convention was founded in 1928, and performs four times a year. Shaped Note singing was an a capella style of church music that utilized shapes to represent notes (fa-so-la-mi) for untrained and even illiterate church members. Only four notes were used in the hymns. An old Anglican practice, English colonists first brought the tradition over to North American in the 1600s. These are field recordings from the Florida Record Project. That project, along with work for the North Florida Project, resulted in the two-album recording, Drop On Down in Florida.
