I am suffering with a sore throat at the moment. What I am trying to figure out is whether its onset is directly related to the fact that I was trying to sing tenor parts on Sunday afternoon as the church choir started preparations for Christmas. I definitely strained my voice and the throat set in after that.
Still, it wasn’t bad enough to stop me taking part in singing at yesterday’s Celebrating Success event at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre. I was performing with the NOC choir and you can see me, top centre and peeking out behind a balloon, in this cutting from the Oxford Mail..
To be honest, the exercise of some relatively gentle singing seemed to help. We have another practise this lunchtime, so we’ll see if that clears things up some more.
