Singing in a choir

Singing in a choir

(p.250) Chapter 19 Singing in a choir
Strong Experiences with Music

Alf Gabrielsson

Oxford University Press

Singing in a choir is something that hundreds of thousands of people in Sweden are involved in. Choirs of all types are to be found throughout the country, even in small communities, ranging from amateur choirs to fully or semi-professional choirs. Swedish choir singing is thus wide-ranging and can also display choirs that belong to the world elite in their field. This chapter presents accounts of strong experiences with music in connection with choir singing. The accounts are divided into four sections: choir singing during childhood and adolescence, singing in large choirs, choir singing in church/religious contexts, and choir singing in other, unusual surroundings.

Keywords:   strong experiences with music, choir singing, childhood, adolescence, religious experience, sweden, swedish choirs, personal accounts
