Music in the Meeting House, June 26

Sunday, June 26, noon - 2:00 p.m.

Rocky Hill Meeting House, 4 Old Portsmouth Road, Amesbury, Mass.

The Connexion Shape-Note singers, headed by Ben Bath, bring the meeting house alive with music from the period in which it was built. The Connexion singers are an all-volunteer blend of community voices young and old, united by a passion for the four-part hymns and anthems of that defined the sound of Early American music.

Rocky Hill Meeting House is a perfect place to experience this powerful sound. It was first taught in eighteenth-century Massachusetts by teacher-composers such as William Billings of Boston, John Stickney of Newburyport, and Jacob Kimball of Topsfield. Malone describes these old harmonies as "rugged and powerful, and they can lift you right out of your chair."

Rocky Hill Meeting House is one of the best preserved examples of an original eighteenth-century meeting house interior. There are no restroom facilities on site. The building is also unheated. We encourage visitors with any concerns to call ahead.
