Listen to and buy Judith's
CDs. Listen to/learn songs
she's taught to SOAS
Judith works across a range of styles, in all sorts of different contexts. One - the one that started her off
on this musical journey, in many ways - is her 'singer/songwriter' or acoustic facet. Her first album, 'The
Day Will Dawn Again' gives you some of that - as do elements of 'moonchild', released in 2005.
Then there's her work with harmony singing, including the songs from around the world that she
teaches at her workshops/choirs and the harmony songs she composes. The trio Anam.Cara, in which
Judith sang for ten years with Angela Reith and Maggie Newlands, has this work at its core, as did the
4-piece a capella group she sang with from 2006 to 2010, Far Flung Voices with co-members of the
Natural Voice Practitioners' Network (NVPN), Sue Parlby, Jenny Goodman and Sarah Harman.
In October 2008, Judith became the Director of the World Music Choir at SOAS (School of African and
Oriental Studies, University of London). Hear them on the MUSIC page. And her new choir - North
Watford Community Choir - began in January 2013 (details on GIGS page).
Judith also writes, teaches and performs Jewish music - in Hebrew, Yiddish and English.
Her performances usually include elements of all of the musical types above, plus a helping of jazz, folk,
music hall... or whatever seems appropriate. She regularly leads music in synagogue services and is
also passionate about interfaith work, participating as often as she can in events that build bridges and
dissolve barriers; her favourite of which is the JCM conference, which takes place every year in Germany.
In December 2010, Judith visited New York to participate in the Shalshelet Festival. Two of her
compositions were selected for inclusion, for live performance and as part of a songbook and CD that
were later released. See some of what happened at http://www.youtube.com - Judith's channel is
moonchild274 - and see the professional video recording of Gesher here.
