Quote of the Day
A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I was more of a dancing kid than a singing kid. I mean, I sang in school choirs and I sang in school musicals, but I was much more interested in dancing than singing.
But how odd that in this heathen nation of empty pews, where churches' bare, ruined choirs are converted into luxury loft living, a Labour government - yes, a Labour government - is deliberately creating a huge expansion of faith schools.
When I was at school, I was in choirs more than anything else, from a very young age, about 9 years old. And then I started taking drum lessons.
Once the Mass is restored to its rightful place, we will again see choirs being developed.
For why should we not admire more the angels themselves and the blessed choirs of heaven?
Giovanni Pico della Mirandola
I began with dance, doing ballet at 3, then tap, jazz, modern. Then I sang in church choirs, learned how to play clarinet and drums, sang with rock bands and only then did I get into musical theatre.
I was 16 when I got a scholarship to study classical composition at a conservatory. By that time I had already listened to Scottish folksong with my mother, sung in church choirs, and had sung solo with Benjamin Britten conducting.
I always sang in church always was in a gospel choir and directed choirs and always performed, but I never thought of it as a powerful thing.
My whole career I have worked with non-Western musicians and different orchestras and ensembles and choirs.
