There was a moment three weeks ago when we had a moment of “Oh wow, that sounds good!” - but it was still very much reserved. So a week later one of us (the only one singing treble) remarked: “Now, I bet you can’t sing louder than me!” which caused a sound eruption. This week then we had very special friends visiting us (Eva from Bremen, Emma and Lewis from Norwich) who called for fuging tunes. The Hamburg newbies accepted the challenge! And some of us might have discovered their bass voice potential … Ah, things are going well at the Hamburg Sacred Harp Singing School.
In case you have missed it: Yotin got three minutes on the local radio (NDR 90,3) to invite everyone to come and sing with us. Also: This Sunday (10th November, 12.30pm) we have an extra meeting: It’ll start with a shared lunch, followed by singing a bit and then watching “Awake, my soul”, a documentary about the Sacred Harp tradition. We meet at the Anglican chaplain’s flat: Matthew Jones, Englische Planke 1a, 20459 Hamburg.
