I joined the sacred harp choir at my church for the “Lessons and Carols” service tomorrow. (Ooh, just had a memory of when I once went to a Lessons and Carols service at this random church with Abby in NYC…miss you Abs). Anyway, sacred harp singing is quite….unusual. It took me a while to warm up to it. It sounds like people are just belting, and it’s messy, and abrasive. I’ve never sung anything like this before. But to be honest, it’s grown on me. Here are a couple clips about sacred harp singing, if you’re interested. Apparently, it’s getting big again in Philly. Look for a sacred harp choir in a city near you!
