Have you been singing in choirs for a few years now, and want to challenge yourself?

We are very excited to introduce you to Lindsey Williams, a superb and original song writer. Candy and Lindsey have been collaborating for over 10 years, and have written 2 books of choir songs together.

We realised that Lindsey’s songs were good, that Candy’s choral arrangements were good, but that the combination was something special. These songs have been sung by choirs across several countries, even crossing continents. You can hear some of them here.

The songs cover a range of topics…from wandering poets through to developing self-awareness, via eco concerns…the Tolpuddle Martyrs… the suffrage movement…the decline of the curlew…escaping over the Berlin Wall – we hope there’s something here for everyone.

The best-known song. Life Lived Well, is an elegiac reflection on growing older and looking back on every aspect of the life you have lived.
We will be creating at least one new song, especially for this week. We’ll also sing many other easy songs from a world music repertoire, plus rounds and singing games.

Treat yourself to a whole week of singing glorious harmonies, soul-filled lyrics, good craic and brilliant, relaxed teaching.

Who is this singing holiday for?

This week will be for singers with some experience: here’s your opportunity to challenge yourself, to really work on some pieces, and improve your choral sound too..

You still don’t have to read music- still a relaxed atmosphere. We will learn by ear, but we will also supply music for those who prefer this.

Over the week, our own little community will build, seed new friendships, connect to local people, explore the natural vibrant beauty surrounding us. So if you like singing, wilderness, a sense of adventure, meeting other interesting folk and returning home feeling refreshed, invigorated and in tune, then join us here
