I have enoyed my time at church when we installed our new vicar. The main enjoyment came for the visit of Christ Church University choir which swelled our choir nicely. I sing bass and was accompanied with 2 others. We sang a motet by Tallis: if ye love me, keep my commandments. (it took me a month to learn by heart).
That choir really stimulated me to want to sing better.Research says that singing does good for people affected with COPD. Of course, the voice is one wind instrument. But I wondered if one could also learn other wind instruments.
I saw this Finnish research on the flute in particular.
here's a more anecdotal article:
And to convince you of the beauty of the instrument, Look at that video by Vivaldi:
I’m quite intrigued in my old age. Any one of you plays the flute or sings? My pulmonary nurse says that it’s a good idea to have a go
Perhaps some of you would consider learning the flute, for instance. I’m certainly will. Any opinion and ideas.
