Out of curiosity, are there any other Sacred Harp / shape note singers in this community? If so, where is your home singing? Do you travel out of state to attend other singings?

(And if you have no idea what I'm talking about and would like to learn more, Wikipedia has a fantastic article on this tradition.)

I have borrowed my city library's copy of this collection of Fairport Convention sheet music and lyrics, dated 1976.

It is somewhat defaced, but far worse - someone has torn out the page with the music and lyrics for 'Meet on the Ledge' and the music for 'Matty Groves'.

The library consider it almost impossible to replace. It doesn't have an ISBN that I can find. I can only find one mention of the book on t'intawebz.

Any thoughts?

My first thought is to request a copy of the much more recent 'The Fairport Convention Songbook' (http://www.maartinallcock.com/songbook1.htm) from the city library, which I know they would either have to buy or get on inter-library loan, and see if they can get that!
