Singing is good for you

I sat in on a session of Singing Aloud last night. It was a fast, noisy session and everyone was fully involved. I already knew a couple of songs and was encouraged to join the basses for 'Catch a Falling Star'. I hadn't learned it with the group but remembered the lower harmony from my childhood. It felt good!

Despite the amount of noise during each section's  run-through with Ruth (mainly enthusiastic practice from other sections) I stayed until the end. The sound is really good - goosebumps from some of the harmonies.

I'm looking forward to learning the bass part to If I Fell (also a song from my childhood).
