I was at a concert a few days ago, of an all male choir, the Chor Leoni. It was amazingly beautiful, gentle and sweet. The baritone, Steve Maddock sang Christmas Angel, composed by a Vancouver songwriter.
I can’t find a version on the internet of Steve singing this song. It is there somewhere because I have listened to it. Available here. However, I can guarantee that it is as sweet and beautiful as this version, sung by a woman. This post rates as “egalitarian” in that the voices of an all male or an all female choir, makes a complete choir. There is no need for women to “complete” men. They are intact in and of themselves, and women also have to right to non-contingency. Let’s just love each other. Let men and women be whole.
This is also a tribute to Diane Loomer, who founded and directed this choir for many years, and composed the music below. She died last week, a few days before the Christmas performance.
