All along there was a song


I See Things - The Choir Practice

Yes, you have heard better choirs: The Vienna Boys', The Mormon Tabernacle, Chanticleer, any Gay Men's. Your own high school choir (you singing second soprano or tenor, perhaps).

But that's not the point. To sing six or 14 or 25 or 60, as opposed to one -- without accompaniment, or perhaps with a pinch of piano or sprinkle of glockenspiel -- is an impulse universally understood. To brave hot lights, a butterfly stomach and shoes that pinch, just to feel shoulder against shoulder and deep collective breath drawn-in and exhaled in song. And not to know where your voice ends and another's begins.
