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.”
