People have been coming together to sing for centuries; even early man exercised his ‘primal voice’ in grunts and intonations that could be understood.
It’s not known when singing as we know it became a ‘thing’ but there is evidence to suggest that ancient cultures (including egyptian, grecian, roman and jewish) considered music an art form.
In more recent times from chanting in monasteries to Handel’s “Messiah” and from pubs to football stadiums, singing together is part of the human experience.
As you’ll read about elsewhere on this site singing is good for you and there is a whole range of additional benefits to be gained from singing together with other people
