The songs we sing in Companion Voices are carefully and lovingly chosen, with the aim of bringing a sense of peace, comfort and support to our listeners.
I am a river flowing to the ocean
I am a river passing through this land…
~ Song by Nickomo
Songs are drawn from many different cultures and traditions and we often sing in languages that won’t be known to our listeners, so they can relax to the gentle tones and syllables without having to engage with their meaning. Our repertoire includes lullabies and chants, old and recently-composed pieces. Songs in English bring messages of kindness and spiritual serenity.
People often ask whether we sing songs that have been meaningful to our listeners during their lives; this can be done at times – depending on the song, listeners, situation, singers and so on. Mostly we feel that our purpose is to help people move forward from life and that familiar sounds might have the effect of pulling them back. Every case is different and every single sing we offer is unique.
