A fun, friendly, mixed choir singing songs from all over the world, all taught by ear. Exciting and exhilarating global and glorious songs in close harmonies. No previous experience needed. Come and have fun with your voice singing delicious songs with power, passion and beauty!
This is a heartful short chant in 3 parts that works well either as an opening or closing song to bring people into the present moment and their bodies. It's been used with groups of 20 up to 200+. It was written by Janna Goodwille after a women's retreat, and the words speak for themselves. The altos have the lead tune; the parts are easy but there's some challenge in hitting the notes and keeping the pitching on the word 'calling' to really make the harmonies sit. It also works in just 2 parts (soprano & alto).
Movement-wise, it's effective to get singers to raise their arms on the first part of the phrase and draw back placing them on the heart in the second half of the phrase. This recording is of Hackney Harmony community choir led by Sophia Efthimiou.
