Companion Voices


Companion Voices are singers who can be called to the bedside of people who are dying, to share our voices and loving presence. Judith founded the first of these groups in Brighton, February 2014. Inspired by the Threshold Choirs in the States and having had the vision and intention to start such a project in the UK for over a decade, she had long been waiting for the time to feel right.

Judith was interviewed in August 2015 by Gil Karpas from JMI about the project.

And there’s an interview here with JEU magazine from March 2017

If you’d like to:

  • call on us to sing at a bedside
