I can’t remember a time that I wasn’t singing. Never having the opportunity in my youth to learn to play an instrument other than the harmonica (but finally later learning the guitar and bass guitar, a Beatle Bass!), I sang.
I remember the thrill of discovering and creating harmony to “The old grey mare, she ain’t what she used to be” when I was about nine years old.
Choirs were always part of my life from primary school Christmas concerts to a small ensemble at Campion College High School (we even sang on TV way back in 1960– CKCK Television, the only TV station in Regina, SK.) to large choral groups throughout my years of formation in the Society of Jesus.
