Very pleased to welcome London Sacred Harp back to OTO for our first show of the new year. The Sacred Harp is an old tradition of community singing that uses a hymn book published in the American South before The Civil War. The music is sung unaccompanied in four parts with the singers seated in a square and facing inwards. The sound is direct and raw. One by one singers step into the centre to lead a song of their own choosing. There are no rehearsals and normally no performances. Singers sing for themselves and for each other in that moment.
London Sacred Harp meet weekly and welcome new singers.
