I discovered the most amazing audio clip recently, recorded by a man called W A Mathiau. I was so excited when I heard it, because my instant response was ‘This is what I do!’ Each week I see boys in The Choir who can’t sing who have experienced this in some way – the shame of not being able to sing; some sort of bad experience which has stopped them from believing that they can sing. And also I see them beginning a journey towards fixing this, and the joy which this can bring them. Of course, teenage boys try not to let on too much that this is what’s going on, but I get occasional glimmers of it, which is enough for me!
I find this deeply moving, and hope it touches you too. http://www.listeningbookaudio.com/tonedeaf.htm
