    I don't remember whether I've already posted this before, but this is an anthem that was very important to me during my college days, for reasons I won't get into now.

    I invite to watch a pure voice music with only the six basic human single voices

    3 males - bass, baritone and tenor
    3 females - contralto, mezzo, and soprane

    (2min: 23sec video)

    That was truly amazing! Very hard to perform all six voices like that.
    Whatever is true. Whatever is noble. Whatever is right. Whatever is lovely. Whatever is admirable. Anything of excellence and worthy of praise. Dwell on these things. Jesus Christ (I agree)

    I love to sing, and I so wish I could sing like that!

    Oh well, at least I'm not tone deaf.

    Hey Dreamtimer, try to found a coral group in your neighborhoods. There may be some one that worth. Ask to watch the rehearsals and the training, before sing with them.

    I would like to remark some relevant infos about this coral video above. Of course its a little training of the youngs, but we can see the quality of this group.

    The music was composed by the first poliphony author knowed (Tomás Luis de Victoria). Using voices, this man simple invented the Orchestra, which instruments play times later the amazing combined sounds He Discovered.

    The Sixteen Group its referenced to Sixteen Century, when this kind of music start to be played, and give influence for all times later, culminating in the era of the great composers (Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, etc).

    Tomas Luis de Victoria composed all harmonic (basic) combinations of poliphony, that others would use to compose their music for orchestras. This composer made a huge cultural impact, and few people know him as the creative genius he was.

    ---

    note - the music are religious, because at that times, only the church sponsored art, and the author had to enter the church until a ruler welcomed him, as happened with Leonardo da Vinci at the end of his life.

    You have the patience of a saint, Dreamtimer, having raised a son with drums. I must say I admire that more than anything. And I'm sure you're not tone deaf...

    Thanks, Border Dog. That's great advice. I sang in a choir in school and college. I also briefly sang in a church choir when my son was growing up. I've contemplated looking for another to join. I'll look into it.

    I loved singing the Carmina Burana. I loved the requiems. I loved singing Vivaldi. I loved the Hallelujah Chorus. I loved the songs like Wade in the Water and I Wonder as I Wander. It's a great experience singing in a choir.

    Except when the conductor is a jerk.

    I used to be super uncomfortable singing in front of people. Only in recent years can I even do that. I'm kinda shy, but much less so than in earlier life.

    Because of the years singing in choir I'm able to blend very well so I like to sing along with music because I don't stand out, I'm part of it.


    When I hear a gorgeous voice, I really wish I could sing like that. But I have a decent voice, and my husband thinks it's lovely. That's enough, really.

    I wouldn't call it cheery, though ─ not if you understand the lyrics. It's a cynical introspection from a professional sailor who has just come ashore after 35 days of not having seen any land and having had to work hard on a ship full of trouble. He then gets drunk so as to have the courage to find himself a sleazy hooker in the red light district, because "l'amour se fait payer" ─ love must be paid for ─ and after "the act", he's disgusted with himself, because he realizes that this is the life he has chosen to lead, and that he's not willing to give up on.

    Ahhh the advantage of NOT understanding the language!
