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” .
