Singing together

The Atlantic has “How Communal Singing Disappeared From American Life” at the end of March. A friend pointed to it through the page on Facebook of the beloved Folk School. It makes the argument that public singing has declined and that it ought to return. The article refers to the Get America Singing… Again! songbooks. They appear to have a good collection of songs. Rise Up Singing is preferred one among friends. The article reminded me of “Shared Song, Communal Memory” from The New York Times a few years ago. They share many points. Sing more.
