Named after a collection of songs first published in 1844, the Sacred Harp singing tradition has spread from the protestant chapels of the southern states of America to the pubs, clubs and community centres of secular northern Europe. Nowadays, people from all walks of life meet to sing these simple, but infectious, four-part a-cappella arrangements, and to enjoy the unique fraternity of the Sacred Harp community. The Hamburg Sacred Harp Singers are constantly looking for new members to help sing “A Glad New Song” .

- The weekly singing on Tuesday 2 May 2017 will not take place at our usual venue but at the Finnish Church on Ditmar-Koel-Straße 6 (one of those small streets close to "Landungsbrücken" with all those Portuguese restaurants and cafés). Also please note another time than usual: 7-9pm.
- The singers from Hamburg (with a lot of help from all the other groups in Germany) are hosting the 4th Germany Sacred Harp Convention this year. We'd be delighted to welcome you back to the city which hosted the first Sacred Harp Convention in Germany. For more information and registration please go this way.
