    This is so exciting!

    • Hi Cindy! Yes, we’re excited about it, too! Let us know if you get to try any of the songs and which ones you like!

  2. Thanks for all your excellent and creative work on this extraordinary project! The expected phrase at this point might be: “You guys rock!” But that is woefully inadequate. So let me simply say that I can see each of you in my mind’s eye sculpting time with your hands in your individual and unique styles. In my mind’s ear, I hear each of your voices, hear them in the haunting harmonies of this music, and I smile. A tear in my eye. A catch in my throat. And look forward to seeing and hearing you all together again.

    • Thanks, John! Next time we reach a difficult point in the editing process (and it is a slog sometimes) I’ll keep your kind words in mind. Hope to sing with you soon!

    We have sung several of the tunes from individual copy sheets at our Tuesday night home singings in Richmond. I just downloaded and printed all of the available tunes and am eagerly awaiting the Berryville singing in June to join with other shape note enthuasists singing from this fantastic collection.
