Shenandoah Harmony electronic edition  

EBooks are individually customized.  Please allow three days for us to process your order after we have received your payment. We will deliver via Google drive file sharing unless you prefer another method.

 

Please note: All proceeds from the sales of The Shenandoah Harmony are being used to subsidize travel to workshops and singings, to compensate contributors for their time and expenses, and to fund future publications. Illegal sharing of the electronic book will limit the ability of the publishing company to continue these projects.

Directions: 

  • We recommend using Adobe Reader or any PDF Reader that allows you to type in a page number and follow hyperlinks.
  • All blue text is hyperlinked.  On a touch screen, you may have to magnify the page to get the hyperlinks to work. On most pages, clicking on the page number takes you to the Table of Contents.
  • The eBook has been arranged with the songs first so you can easily go to a song by typing in its page number. To get started, follow the link on the first page to the Table of Contents.  Please read the Terms of Use.  You can also follow links from the Table of Contents to the title page and all the indices.
  • You can navigate to a song either by entering its page number directly (if your viewer permits) or through the indices, by following the hyperlinks to the song’s page. Depending on the size of your device’s screen, you may have to magnify the page or use a stylus to make the links work, as they are small.
  • Most PDF readers have a feature that shows bookmarks for the file and these also take you to the various indices.
  • You may also add your own comments and bookmarks to the eBook – for example, bookmarking titles of songs you like – if you have a PDF reader that allows this.
  • Shape-note music has some features that may be unfamiliar if you have not attended a shape-note singing. In particular, the melody is in the tenor line, not the top line of the staff. You can read more in the section “How to Sing from This Book.”

  1. Question: How did you set up or format the tunebook for this wonderful ebook edition? I have my own tunebook (High Desert Harmony) that I would like to do the same as you have done here.

    • Cool! I used LaTeX to create a hyperlinked PDF. If you don’t use LaTeX, you can use Adobe Acrobat Pro, I believe, though you would have to do it by hand. One thing I would recommend is to crop your page as much as possible so there are no margins. This allows the maximum space to be devoted to music.

    • Have you seen the full version, Daniel? There are a number of features there that aren’t available in the demo. You can also zoom in and out since the music is also vector graphics rather than a page scan.
