Sacred Harp datasets

This is a single dataset of all the songs in The Sacred Harp, 1991 Edition (Denson Revision). A .csv spreadsheet and a .json file are available.

Where the data exists, these data are available:

  • song number
  • bare song number (ie. a plain number without the 't' or 'b' after the song number for top or bottom)
  • song title
  • composer/source
  • composition date
  • poet/source
  • poetry date
  • poetic meter
  • lyrics
  • time signature

The data is consolidated from the main index of songs on and a time signature index.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
