Chorus America Articles about Singing and Health

Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing With Others
Chorus America (a choral organization for conductors, singers, researchers) just came out with a series of articles about singing and health (my book is mentioned in one of the articles, thank you Chorus America!).

I really feel a surge of interest in singing, and since choirs are one of the most accessible forms of singing outside of the shower, I’m feeling very hopeful about my book. Advance reviews have been positive!

“Horn beautifully captures the magnificent feeling of joining oneself to something larger, becoming something greater in harmony with others than solo. Like her beloved soprano notes, Horn’s love of making music soars through her book.” — Booklist

“Even if the only singing readers do is in their car, Horn’s story of finding happiness in choral harmony will leave them applauding for the encore.” — Library Journal

“Horn eloquently traces the evolution of ensemble singing … She writes movingly about how singing about death and simply breathing together bring a transcendent feeling of harmonious belonging.” — Publisher’s Weekly

This is the final cover.

  1. Yay for you! Must be quite the feeling after so much time and hard work to see a book in its finished state.

  2. Thank you! Of course someone has to pan it, no one gets all good reviews, so I’m waiting for the hammer or hammers to fall!

    Then we can all go beat the bad reviewers up.

  3. Looks great. Sounds like it is getting off to a good start. Wishing you the best of luck and great success with it!!

  4. Oh, thanks for the reminder and a look at the cover. I just put my pre-order in on Amazon! Can’t wait. I honestly don’t think that there will be any bad reviews! 🙂
