Here’s a screen grab from a video — just posted — of last week’s Maine Cooper book singing. (I’m sitting in the back corner, as far from the videographer as you can get.) This is Jesse leading 98:

Here’s a photo from today’s evening Cooper Book singing in Maine:
It was a little dusty in the pulling shed, but the sound was remarkably good, even with the very high ceiling. Plus it was a lot of fun to sing Sacred Harp in person.
Bath, Maine, local singing
This afternoon, Carol and I drove up from where we were staying — in Sace, Maine — to Bath, Maine, to sing Sacred Harp on the gazebo in the center of Bath.
It turned out to be an excellent place to sing, which may show that a good singing space does not need walls if you have a wood ceiling and a wood floor. And with no walls, we were much less worried about transmitting COVID, especially with the stiff breeze that was blowing.
It also turned out to be an excellent group of people to sing with. As Carol said after the singing, “It was a really tight group.”
