Hmm, it seems to be working here. Is it not working for anyone else?
Working for me

It's working for me.
Never mind got it
Have you looked at the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, PA, are doing with their amazing music collection? They are doing citizen archivists to catalog and transcribe their collection of music. This includes hymnals, which include shape and round note hymnals.
Looked at what… oops/
What particular Metadata Scheme did you use for organizing the metadata?
Glad to see that you are using a marketing approach to advertising your work.
Exactly. Marketing tells the story - right on!
Do you also collect programs from shape note music performances, recordings, etc… to help give a broader picture?
Thank you Pam and Mariah for creating, promoting, and preserving this collection. This is a valuable part of our collective heritage.
This history was so interesting!
Thank you for this information!
Thank you! That was an excellent overview.
Great information and presentation!
Are there groups now teaching shaped note?
I'm going to start a digitization project soon and I'm currently thinking through how to name digitized files - what are your rules for file naming for this collection?
Have you shared this out to the Music Library Association community? They may find it useful.
Thank you, Dr, Dennis, for hearkening back to my musicologist days. Great for reinforcing the importance of this project.
have you obtained any grants for digitization or other archive projects?
I am beginning a sabbatical this fall with shape note singing as the central study. This was super helpful! Thank you both so much! I will probably be in touch.
Great information. I have a shaped note hymnal that was my father-in-law's and it is a treasure! I can't wait to hear the shaped note singing. I enjoy the primitive hymns like I'll Fly Away with our praise band.
You may have to close the share and reopen a share, checking the share computer sound function.
Great workshop. Very informational. Music majors planning to specialize in sacred music should participate in shape note singing.
