Soul Soundings

Candy initiated and built up the Soul Soundings event over 10 years. Soul Soundings takes place in some of the world’s most ancient and sacred buildings- Wells Cathedral and Bath Abbey for example. Participants are invited to explore the resonance, connecting us to those who have worshipped and sung there over hundreds of years. We move around the building, experiment with different tones, use echoes, drones and free singing to deeply experience the resonance within the fabric of the building.Music is learnt by ear and the events are open to all, from experienced musicians to beginners.

Since its inception in 2010, Soul Soundings has raised thousands of pounds for charity, mostly going to the Barenboim Said Foundation, and Oxfam Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal.
Soul Soundings is now directed by Jane Harris:
