Join your voice on these open monthly Saturday morning workshops to co-create a beautiful and uplifting 'cathedral of sound' in this beautiful refurbished church. This is a more intentional singing space than our regular sessions, though the intention for each singer is personal and often private. Sing the songs for your self, for others, for the planet, for the ancestors; surrounded by a welcoming and supportive community.
"The songs we sing often speak about moments in life that we can celebrate or difficult times that we experience and the wonder of the natural world. I always feel uplifted and encouraged at the end of a session."
We sing lots of short, cyclical songs from various faith and spiritual traditions, and none, which lead us into contemplation. These come from a variety of sources including Taize, Iona, Nickomo's Harmonic Temple and other songwriters of the Natural Voice Network. We also sing songs from the Gospel and Spiritual traditions, as well as newer songs written in the same style. Some of our songs have no explicit religious or spiritual content but tell about our common human experiences of grif, joy, community and love. These are not 'religious' events and are open to people of any faith or none who wish to connect with others in song in a space dedicated to acknoledging and celebrating our interconnectedness.
