Indian Melodies

I’m making a version of Indian Melodies available as a print-on-demand book from

Indian Melodies features tunes by Thomas Commuck, a member of the Brothertown Indian nation. This was the first musical publication by a Native composer in the U.S., and was published with 4-shape note-heads. This inexpensive, legible, and complete edition is designed for use by Sacred Harp and shape note singers; it is sold at cost.

Due to Lulu’s printing limitations, this edition is bound across the top (long edge), instead of across the end (short edge) as is customary with shape note tunebooks. Since this edition is issued under a Creative Commons license, you are welcome to reprint it with whatever binding you prefer.
