Singing Once More.

What a glorious time it was,

To be singing once more,

Singing with others.

Music is my life,

Singing is part of it

But after such a long time

Not being able to sing

The joy was still there,

The joy of producing music

Through our voices

For others to hear.

There we were in the church,

Just six of us,

But the organ sounded

And our voices burst out of our hearts

Singing to the world once more.

Comes the day,

Comes the day soon

When all the choir will sing

And the beauty of music

Will sail from our voices

Into the ether forever.

    Glad you've got back to the choir GF. Sing your heart out! Lovely poem

    • Goldfinch60

      Thank you SC, it was great to go back.

      Cooee! Good write Gold.
      It's a gloomy day - my singing resumes! lol.
      I'm sure my singing tutor knows something, but its not telling me. I've paid out for 5,284 lessons so far. He says I'm improving, so.....!

      • Goldfinch60

        So your back!!
        I know a choir that you could join it is called 'Aberdeen Rock Choir' they rehearse every Wednesday and there is no need for an audition.


        • orchidee

          Thanks Gold. Do they rehearse miles out in Shetlands, so most people won't hear me? Only those in the choir, and they will drown me out.

          some things are gradually returning to normal it seems .. I can't help worrying there may be a price to pay though .............................. I dont like being wrong any more than the next bloke .. but would not object if I have erred in my thinking on this one ..

          • Goldfinch60

            Yes it is still worrying times but in this case we were sitting 2 metres apart and wearing masks when not singing. I do not think we are out of the woods yet.


          • dusk arising

            What an uplifting release singing is.

            • Goldfinch60

              It surely is da, as you well know.


            • L. B. Mek

              organ is such a powerful instrument
              you could be six hundred or six
              and you wouldn't notice it,
              thanks for sharing Andy

              • Goldfinch60

                A good organist can adapt to the power of the choir and drown them out when they are rubbish. LOL.
                We had a good response though which pleased us.


              • Doggerel Dave

                Are you sure about this, Andy? Even from far away it looks like madness to me...
                Understand this newfound freedom applies to England alone not the rest of the UK. Correct?

                • Goldfinch60

                  I can understand your feelings Dave and we do still need to be careful. I am sure we are not out of the woods yet but it was so good to sing with others.


                • Accidental Poet

                  I think there was an Angel singing beside you Andy. ; )

                  • Goldfinch60

                    There certainly was AP, she had a wonderful voice and used to be the singer in the Swing Band that we were in some years ago.


                  • John Prophet

                    Hi Andy

                    Very nice heart felt write.


                    • Goldfinch60

                      Thank you John, most kind.

                      Singing, an emotional release, a calming experience.
                      Thank you

                      • Goldfinch60

                        Very true Suresh.


                      • The Uneducated O.A.P

                        Love choir music, Andy, but not for me at the mo.
                        Good luck

                        • Goldfinch60

                          These times are still strange and we need to find our own way back into some sort of new normality.


                        • myself and me

                          I enjoy listening the song, so beautiful, bring peace to the uneasy mind.

                          • Goldfinch60

                            Glad it brought peace to you mandm, Voces8 are a good group to listen too.
