Lift up your Voice | Ammerdown, Somerset | October 2019 – review

Singers came from far and wide for our first singing weekend at the beautiful Ammerdown Centre led by Director of Songways, Jane Harris. We enjoyed a wide range of songs including evocative English folksongs, a heart-warming folksong from Ireland, songs to mark the changing seasons, a powerful South African song of peace, a lively Appalachian mountain song, beautiful chants and Jane’s own compositions May you go well and In the beauty of the world.

Comments from the singers:

Beautiful songs, beautiful singing and beautiful venue
A delightful and inspiring weekend
Joyous and uplifting
Jane Harris is an inspiration. This was my first time singing with her – it was most enjoyable as well as inspiration.

The Ammerdown Conference and Retreat Centre nestles in woods next to a stately home, surrounded by landscaped gardens and parkland. At the heart of the centre is a delightful chapel, where we sang. The whole place is steeped in peace and tranquillity – no traffic noise, only birdsong. Only 12 miles south of Bath.
