trivia 7/11

trivia 7/11

When choir singers perform together, their heart rates tend to synchronize.
The more structured the piece, the greater the synchrony. Researchers
attribute this to the controlled breathing techniques that singers use,
which effectively coordinate their breathing. This is also likely why choral
singing has the overall effect of slowing the heart rate. Thus, like yoga
breathing and guided breathing, which have been shown to lower blood
pressure, choir singing could improve cardiovascular health.
