JohnnyBeezer Unaccompanied Singing - How & Why! (89* d) RE: Unaccompanied Singing - How & Why! 12 Mar 03

Dear Folkie
Perhaps someone should invent the capo.
The voice is of course the seminal and most ancient instrument, closely followed by percussion.
Speaking as a guitarist, I have experienced many a frisson listening to live 3&4 handed unaccompanied singing over the last several decades
the emotion can be phemonenal.
Also, of course, we can go right back to Plainsong chants which are incredibly moving pieces. Although I am not a Christian, I am in awe of the beautifully poetic Christian writings which, together with the unaccompanied harmonies in monasteries etc., serve to present a real "GUT" experience
