Singing Together Apart
‘Singing Together Apart’ is a song written and performed by Commoners Choir during lockdown, when the group were no longer able to meet in person and sing together.
“The sheer physicality of 70+ people in a room, singing, is impossible to emulate on screens, separated and distanced. But recording this song in our kitchens, living rooms and gardens and then being able to see how it can come together to make a proper Commoners Choir song is a way to remind us of how we can still, through all this, be a shouty, laughing, gang of a choir. The tune is vaguely Italian, inspired by the lovely films of Italians in quarantine singing together on their balconies.” Commoners Choir
