Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others

Imperfect Harmony: Singing Through Life's Sharps and Flats - Stacy Horn I picked this up (free at ALA Midwinter) because one of my dearest friends is a singer in a choir, and my son also sang when he was in high school. I enjoyed parts of this very much. I loved Horn's descriptions of what it is like to sing, how the feelings one has when creating music are different from (and probably superior to) the feelings one gets when listening to music. I really enjoyed her discussions of various pieces of music, and the music history in general. I didn't like the memoir parts nearly so well. 2.5
