Recordings of songs from The Missouri Harmony, 2005 edition

Shape Note music is definitely for singing. We do not have auditions, rehearsals or performances as such. We simply gather to sing the music we love. You are welcome to join us to sing anytime. Musical talent or training is not required.

While we try to capture the essence in these recordings, we have to admit that it is frankly impossible. Only being present in a room full of singers, singing sincerely but with a determination and full-bodied sound, can do justice to the music and the tradition. With that in mind, here are live recordings of songs from The Missouri Harmony, 2005 edition Other sites with live recordings of shape note songs include BostonSing.org or YouTube
