This section features resource information about some of the earliest vocal music written or performed in the United States of America.

It includes information about the oldest choral society in the U.S. and the best known Shaker song from the oldest continuing relgious communal society in the U.S. Both were organized in the 1780s.

Music from early New England has been neglected for far too long and deserves to be heard once again.

All the items listed below were researched and written by Roger Lee Hall, Director of the New England Music Archive.
