As an introduction to the shapenote music that will take over their church hall the following week (see below), Plymouth Church of the Pilgrims has invited a group of local shape-note singers to serve as “choir” at their Sunday services from 11 to noon on September 14. When I know what we’ll be singing, I’ll post a list. Services will be in the beautiful 1850 sanctuary on Orange Street, which I know from having attended High Holiday services there years ago (the church lent its space to the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue). UPDATE: Aldo has forwarded the carefully selected list of songs — after the jump for anyone interested.
