Historical Singing Tidbits

Singing is so basic to humankind that its origins are long lost in antiquity. It is likely the earliest singing was a simple imitation of the sounds heard in nature. The voice is presumed to be the original musical instrument, and there is no human culture, no matter how remote or isolated, that does not sing. Not only is singing ancient and universal, historically, it goes far beyond simply being a part of the entertainment. Singing has always been a natural and important part of daily life.
