Shape-note music--so called for its unique style of notation--and also known as "fasola" singing, is a teaching and social music proactice dating back to Colonial New Engalnd, but which still thrives today among many pockets of enthusiasts across the country. Hundreds of short four-part tunes are preserved in colorfully named tune books, such as The Singing Master's Assistant, Christian Harmony and The Sacred Harp.
