This music is characterized by open harmonies and a raw powerful sound that is sung in unaccompanied, 4-part harmony. All religious affiliations (and un-affiliations) are welcome. We sing for each other and the joy of singing. This is music for participation, rather than performance. We would love to sing with you! No experience needed! Loaner books will be available.
