A place for songs to live
Songs from the Community
In this digital space, recordings of songs are like seeds. They are alive yet dormant. These recordings contain all the information needed for a beautiful creation to unfurl. As a seed must have water, a song must be sung. That's why these recordings are offered freely. This library, then, is supported by community contributions (which you can make here).
This is a different model of song sharing than most of us today are used to. In a paradigm where songs are a shared resource of the community, there is a consensus that we try to honor the songwriter by sharing their name, and honor the song by singing it exactly the way we learned it. While not always possible, practicing this kind of integrity ensures that when a North Carolinian comes to Oregon, we can sing together without dispute over who knows the "right" version.
