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.
Look out the best of your old photos/DVDs of NVPN gatherings and events. Let Gill know what you have and arrange for it to be put on the website.
There's now a Noticeboard page where you can add short-term notices for things such as lift shares; notice of a visiting tutor's workshop tour; second-hand books/recording equipment for sale. Check it out!
