Brilliant, just brilliant. So emotional I thought. I would recommend watching on iplayer :-)

I agree. It's so good to see how belonging to the choirs had positive effects on so many people.

Loved that little Lewis is still singing. 10 years ago, I watched him and I cried as he sang his little heart out! smile

Yes, I really remembered Lewis from the first time round. He still looks exactly the same! The experience obviously had a real impact on him.

Gareth Malone has brought choral singing to a lot of people and I truly admire him for that. I couldn't believe that he has been doing it for 10 years. Shortly before I retired my firm introduced a workplace choir and I was persuaded to join. I was the type of person who, when at work, is completely in work mode and at first I found it difficult to suddenly switch into choir mode at 5:30 every Tuesday. However, once I had got used to the transition, I would thoroughly enjoy the hour's rehearsal and go home feeling uplifted, singing all the way. When I retired I was inspired by my participation in the workplace choir to join a local choral society and I now sing serious stuff such as Verdi's requiem, Handel's Messiah, Mendelssohn's Elijah and so on. And it is all attributable indirectly to Gareth Malone's pioneering work.
