Alda has written such a wonderful description of the experience of a Sacred Harp sing. Even though the singing occurs in the "hollow square", it's always an open square- with newcomers welcomed and encouraged to join in. The community singing of Sacred Harp often seems to happen "under the wire," perhaps because, it's not about money and not about performing. Alda, when you are in your home-town again, you, and any reader, would be warmly welcome to join us in Tallahassee Fl where we sing twice a month!
