Date

Collection
Florida Folklife Collection
Description
One reel to reel recording. 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.

Description
<p>Lee, from Hoboken, Ga., conducts a singing school, teaching participants shape note singing and songs from <em>The Sacred Harp</em>. He explains the history of shape note singing and <em>The Sacred Harp&nbsp;</em>in the Okefenokee region, indicating that singers learned to sing through aural transmission, passed down from generation to generation. Lee describes the four shapes (fa, sol, la, mi) and how they correspond to the major scale, followed by a demonstration. After clarifying how singers keep time and stay on beat, he explains how beats can be grouped together in common, compound, or triple time. As a synthesis of the lesson, Lee leads the class in tunes from <em>The Sacred Harp</em>, Revised Cooper Edition. There is digital distortion due to tape corruption on "Florida."</p>
