Sacred Harp: This website started as a way for me to blog about my experiences as a new Sacred Harp singer. After I was no longer a new singer, I blogged about all-day singings and conventions, as well as some of the unusual venues where I’ve been a Sacred Harp singer (a poetry reading, the Santa Cruz Baroque Festival, a classroom at Stanford Univ., a peace walk, etc.). During the pandemic, I blogged briefly about online singing.
Sacred songs and hymns: Over time, this website expanded to include other sacred songs and hymns. This began when I posted some of my early efforts at shapenote compositions, and expanded to include copyright-free hymns and sacred songs that might be useful to Unitarian Universalist and other liberal religious congregations.
