下北沢音楽祭/Shimokitazawa Music Festival

English below. 7月7日(土)、我々「図形音符・アカペラ混声合唱の会」は下北沢音楽祭に出場します!しもきたスクエア(下北沢駅北口正面)で出番は12:35~12:55。 ビートルズの「She Loves You」を歌ってから、教会の讃美歌や日本の昔の曲を歌うという一貫性がない支離滅裂なプログラムかもしれません。唯一の共通点は声の限りに全力で歌う(叫ぶ?)のです。どうぞ、お聴きにいらしてください。お祭りだから飛び入り参加もありです。前もって練習したい方は、当日11:00に音楽祭のミュージックラウンジとして指定されている「下北沢ナザレン教会」に集合してください。尚、第一土曜17:00に定期開催されている歌の会も同日あります。詳細は https://shimokita-fes.com/28th/ Shape-note singers on stage at the Shimokitazawa Music Festival, Sat, July 7, 12:35-12:55 pm, in Shimokita Square at the north exit of Shimokitazawa Station in Tokyo. We'll be singing church hymns, old Japanese songs, and yes, "She Loves You" by the Beatles. That might sound like an incoherent lineup, but the thing tying it all together is we'll be singing at the top of our lungs. Come out to listen, and if the spirit moves you, join in (It's a festival after all). If you want to practice ahead of time, meet us that day at 11:00 am in Shimokitazawa Church of the Nazarene, designated by the festival as its "music lounge." And if you stick around till the evening, join us for our regularly-scheduled First Saturday Shape-Note Singing at 5:00 pm at the church. See https://tinyurl.com/shimokita-sing2018

"She Loves You" in Shape Notes

日本語での詳しい説明は省略してありすみません。7月7日(土)日中に下北沢駅北口前広場のしもきたスクエアで行う下北沢音楽祭でビートルズの "She Loves Me" を一緒に歌ってくれる方は下記のリンクに行くと楽譜が見られ、又各パートの音源もあり練習ができます。(ちょっとうけを狙って)ビートルズを音符で歌うというおもしろい試みに参加してみませんか。
Pardon my encroaching on this Sacred Harp page to post such anathema as The Beatles in shape notes, but I've always said if a song can be written in notes, it can be written in shape notes, and if you can get people to sing their music in shape notes, you'll have more people to sing your music in shape notes. One of our singers, Keiichi Ogawa, asked us if we could sing "She Loves You" in four-part seven-shape shape notes for a music festival in Shimokitazawa on the day of our July Christian Harmony singing, Saturday, July 7, and I answered the way my generous grandmother always answered: "Why not?" So, in that ecumenical spirit, I'm posting here the hard work of another singer, Hideyo Takada, who went to the bother of finding an acappella version of the song, and open source software (the almighty MuseScore) to transpose it into shape notes and generate synthesized audio files for each part separately and combined. If you'll be anywhere near Tokyo on July 7, we'd love for you to join us in Shimokita Square (north exit of Shimokitazawa Station) in the afternoon, and then at our regularly scheduled first Saturday Christian Harmony singing at 5:00. Just practice with the below links and at our June Christian Harmony singing, Saturday, June 2.

"She Loves You" sheet music in shape notes for four parts

"She Loves You" - treble audio

"She Loves You" - alto audio

"She Loves You" - tenor audio

"She Loves You" - bass audio

"She Loves You" - all parts audio

Compare to "She Loves You" sung by the Beatles

I think we may just make history being the first people anywhere to ever publicly perform the Beatles in shape notes. Come make history with us!
