When we sing together… there is always Peace

A choir can literally harmonise our intentions towards celebration, advocacy, affirmation, admission, wonder, hope, grief and ultimately togetherness. It is not only the fact of being together (standing together definitely helps) but the added and magic ingredient of music, of sound and rhythm that seduces us to a state of non-ego where our selfish impulses are appeased in favour of a more thrilling and all-consuming goodness, as all participate in a wilfull manifestation of beauty. This is a collective choice for good!

Hunger for collective expression, intimacy, empathy and healing appears to be possible through singing together. If only more people would sing together, for when we sing, there is always Peace!

Perhaps these two clips below are about collective humanity (thank you to Cleveland and Niall):
