Welcome to the home of the Association of eXtreme Quartetting™ Harmony Brigades cumulative song history database. The data accessible through this site is based on the master database maintained by Larry Triplett for the music committee of the Association. Any errors in this online database are mine and Larry's database is considered the definitive source material.
The data for any given year will not be available here until late July/early August of that year. The reason? Spoilers. I don't want to ruin the surprise for the folks who only participate in the last brigade of the year that get their music packets in July.
I am actively looking for feedback from any brigader that uses these reports. Tell me what you like, what you don't like, what you think is missing, what you think isn't necessary, etc. For now, this data is only available through this website but future plans for developing a mobile-friendly version and possibly an Android app are being considered.
There are six reports available at this time that provide the following functionality:
- AHB Classics (Builds the list of AHB Classics)
- Chronological History (Builds the complete listing of which songs were sung by each brigade by year)
- Which brigades sang it? (Allows the user to see which brigades included a particular song)
- Online Wallet Cards (Reproduces the song listing for a particular brigade in the familiar Song, Key, Starting Words format. This is meant for online viewing only.)
- Complete List of Songs (Provides all of the particulars about a given song. Who arranged it, what key is it in, etc.)
- When was the last time a song was sung at a brigade? (This is similar to the complete list of songs but also includes the last year a song was included at any brigade.)
The XQ Database structure and other geeky info are available for those of you who are interested in the details.
I'd like to thank Larry Triplett, David Queen, Mike O'Donnell, David Speidel, Duane Henry, Daniel Schwartz, Nic Cols, Bob Boone & John Loucks for their help in providing missing data.
I'd also like to thank Steve Armstrong, Tim Peterson, Jim Toth, Steve Tremper, and Larry Triplett for being my beta testers!
