Choir Joy’s?

I wrote this down a while and I found it again, so I decided to post it with some adjustments.
If you love singing as much as I do, you most likely have already joined a choir or music group or something.
Now if you aren’t in any of the groups mentioned above you need to join one, even if it’s only for fun.
In every school I’ve been in since Year 8 (JSS 2) I have been in the choir. And I have to tell you, if your choir is filled with amazing talent, the feeling of being in the midst is profound.
I, once in a while, just keep quiet and listen to everybody else, and it is honestly like being in heaven.
All the voices just blend to make beautiful music.
I personally love listening to cello compositions, and being in the midst of all of these people, gives me a feeling of happiness that I’ve had only on occasion outside such a setting.
For example, I’ve found that I can’t be truly sad when listening to strings. It’s the same with when I’m rehearsing or ministering with my choir.
I might become wistful, which my dictionary defines as thoughtful sadness, but never truly sad.
But this is no longer the case, of recent I’ve been actually sad and depressed, not just thoughtfully so. It is so annoying, because this used to be my sanctum, my place of peace and some tranquillity. But that illusion has been shattered by my annoying episodes of depression, what is really pissing me off is that I don’t know what causes these episodes, I just discover that I can’t enjoy what I used to love.
So today we have put on a brave face to see if I can begin to enjoy music again.
