Every year Handel’s Messiah is performed countless times around the globe, and audiences continue to fill concert halls for performances of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana. The physical and emotional benefits of choral singing have been widely documented in recent decades: from lowering stress levels to strengthening your immune system. What is it about choral singing that makes it so magical?
