I started singing in the church choir. I had not realized how much I enjoy being a part of a worship group. Seven and a half years have passed since Eden was born and I stopped leading worship at the Mexican church. Getting involved again has been especially fun for me because I am stretching myself. For so long I have sang lead or invented my own harmony which I am discovering is a combination of both the alto and tenor parts. So now I’m learning to discipline myself to sing & read the alto line, simply sticking to the notes which are written.
I love singing alto! It is so much more interesting to me than the soprano line. It is especially challenging, because I don’t actually hear the alto part in my mind like I do the soprano one, so I rely heavily on reading the music and then tone matching with the other altos. This at times can also prove challenging as our tenor section is very strong and they stand right behind me. Sometimes I find myself voice matching with them instead.
At any rate it has been great fun to begin singing with a group again.
