The Harmonia Sacra Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the legacy of Joseph Funk, a Southern shaped-note hymnal publisher and singing school instructor. Funk (1778-1862) was the publisher of Harmonia Sacra, a hymnal still in use today in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He was a founder of the village of Singers Glen in Rockingham County, where his house still stands.
The society will use its endowment to preserve the Funk house, eventually using it as a headquarters and museum. We also promote regular singings from the Harmonia Sacra, research into Funk’s life and work, and remembrance of Funk’s influence on modern congregational singing in the Mennonite church and elsewhere.
