I feel that singing is partially an expression of how one feels at the moment they are singing, and alot of the time this can depend on external factors such as the feeling of security and acceptance in the place ones sings.
When one is surrounded by others that share the same beliefs, it is a very secure feeling indeed.
Then there are feelings of the future, secure in the belief that the future is secure, and this can be seen in those who sing when it seems all is against them, marching into battle, or even about to be executed for ones beliefs or non- belief...
Then there are words spoken which are not sung but stated in situations which might be disaterous when no hope of physical survival exists, this is sometimes expressed in statements against oppressors, and even written in poems.
Of course there are so many other reasons for song, joy of living, prospects of the afterlife, the mustering of strength, purpose and courage.
Last but not least is the aspect of singing or listening for enjoyment, just because we are able to experiance it.
I am sure there are many other reasons, but sometimes it is just because we can, such as whistleing while we work or walk through the woods, contentment, satisfaction, release.
Just some thoughts on the subject, and chanting seems to aid in the focusing of inner thought as well as opening up to suggestions, depending on the situation.
Song is a language unto itself, as is the noises we make, beats, tempo, pitch, tone, intensity...
