Camp Fasola, class singing no. 2

Thunderstorms today, with some heavy rain and near gale winds.

Maybe there was electricity in the air, because the singing was more lively this evening during the class singing. I especially noticed that tempos were faster. I was watching some of the campers who have never sung Sacred Harp music before, and at times the pace was fast enough that they looked lost. When I talked with a couple of them later, they said they did feel a little lost.

And I thought about Dan Brittain’s workshop in the morning when he said that his preference was to lead tunes at slower tempos, so the class can better hear the harmonies.
