I think there's a moral in this somewhere.

Testosterone in Male Songbirds May Enhance Desire to Sing, but Not Song Quality

Interesting. In a choir I'm in it's noticeable that when women come up against something that's hard to sing they are liable to go quietly, or mime without singing, whereas the men tend to sing away at full volume regardless of whether we're getting it wrong or not.

Of course that probably makes it easier for the choir leader to spot when we need to be put right. Which she has to often enough...

The effect suggested by McG has long been noted, however my choir director some 50 years ago pointed out that the book says "make a joyful noise ...," but doesn't say it must be "musical."

(We had a couple of very loud male "offenders" in the congregation.)
