The Big Note #22 – The Power of Voice

When used by itself in musical expression the human voice is a powerful instrument, when combined with other voices it can express and evoke spiritual transcendence beyond our day to day experience. It is no wonder it is found in the sacred music of cultures around the world.
 We play tracks featuring and talk about different forms of voice in sacred and traditional music. Examples of Gregorian Chant, Inuit and Tibetan Throat singing and Japanese Shigin style voice are explored. I also indulge in a little of my love of Japanese music old & new towards the end of the episode.
