The Sacred Harp - Deletions for the 1991 Edition

The Sacred Harp 1991 is descended from a series of shape-note books that began in 1844.  Over the years successive revisions added and deleted tunes from previous editions.  However, all tunes that were deleted before 1966 can be found online in either the 1859 edition or in the 1911 James Book. (All the tunes published in editions before 1859 or after that date, but before 1911, can also be found in either the online 1859 or 1911 editions respectively.)

 

There are, however, tunes that were printed in the 1936 and 1960 revisions that were deleted in the 1966 revision, and additional  tunes printed in the 1966 revision that were deleted upon publication of The Sacred Harp 1991. It is the intent of this webpage to provide images of the pages showing these deleted tunes.

 

Not all such tunes are illustrated here, only those tunes that can NOT be found on the 1850 and 1911 websites referred to above.

 

The tunes that are displayed can be found on the following pages in page number order beginning with the 1966 deletions, followed by those that took place in 1992, the actual publication date of The Sacred Harp 1991.

 

Note that all of these tunes are under copyright. The Sacred Harp Publishing Company has allowed permission for BostonSing.org to display its copyrighted pages online.
