New schedule of 2010 central Illinois Sacred Harp singings

As submitted today by Berkley Moore of Springfield to the website:
Central Illinois:
Quarterly singings at the Rock Springs Nature Center in Decatur - Year-round irregular singings at various sites - Info: Terry Hogg, (217) 422-2363, UserGem5136[at] or Berkley Moore (217) 793-0024, berkleymoore7195 [at]
Berkley also maintains an updated central Illinois schedule on the SACRED HARP.mus website. The website has MIDI files from the Sacred Harp, both Denson and Cooper books; the Christian Harmony, both Alabama and North Carolina books; as well as other 19th-century books including the Hesperian Harp and a link to Berkley's online publication of JEPG files of The Hesperian Harp, William Hauser (1848). A valuable resource. Berkley argues the tunebook is "the largest, and arguably the best, of the shape-note tune books of the Nineteenth Century."
