Further information:

Brought to you by Singing Mamas Choir, this is our very first Song Book containing 21 beautiful and original songs – available to order now!

The Songline sessions over lock down 2020 was an uplifting and vital experience for many of us – the gift of a song, three times a week, brought us together as a community and enabled us to feel joy and comfort as we sang.

We have put together a song book which celebrates the Singing Mamas Choir community and the very special guest song sharers to the Songline series – featuring compositions by Helen Yeomans, Kirsty Orr, Sophia Efthimiou, Fran Andre, Kirsty Martin, Asha McCarthy and many more!

The song book is for everyone, and designed to be accessible to all regardless of singing ability. It does not require you to be able to read music as we have included the option to purchase the parts as downloadable MP3’s and Listening Album. As well as the MP3s, there are also helpful performance notes.

You can enjoy and share these songs at home, in your choir setting, amongst friends, in schools and as part of voluntary roles in the community.

As part of honouring the gift of song that the contributors have made, we have made sure to include in their own words, where the inspiration to write the song has come from and the origins of the song.
