glueman What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean? (86* d) RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' 21 May 11


A BBC Radio 3 prog yesterday with a classically trained white middle class singer who'd decided to record black spirituals. 'And de walls came-a tumbling down' in perfect RP just sounds stupid.

I don't mind folk tunes being given a classical treatment by Ferrier or Piers or whoever but spirituals and slave songs in Oxford accents with the addition of Dis n' Dat is fundamentally misplaced.
