When Choirs Sing, Many Hearts Beat As One : NPR

When Choirs Sing, Many Hearts Beat As One : NPR | Classical Singing and Opera | Scoop.it
When members of a choir sing, their heart rates quickly become synchronized, beating in the same rhythm. Researchers think this may be why singing together is a key part of religious rituals around the world, and such a joy for the singers.
YourAccompanist's insight:

Using pulse monitors attached to the singers' ears, the researchers measured the changes in the choir members' heart rates as they navigated the intricate harmonies of a Swedish hymn. When the choir began to sing, their heart rates slowed down.

Opera's ever-inquisitive Eric Owens is in high demand - Los Angeles Times | Classical Singing and Opera | Scoop.it

After all the rave reviews and attention that the Met's "Ring" has given him, Owens insists he's not a celebrity: "Yes, after the HD broadcast, people from different cities and countries started wanting my autograph, so that was different," he says. "It wasn't like I was famous then, but opera lovers took notice — so maybe I was opera-world famous. But those are very different things."
