'SIng Out Your Song' Taize workshops in Clitheroe

More than 35 people attended a candlelit Taize service at the United Reformed Church in Clitheroe just before Christmas.

It was the culmination of six Taize workshops led by Ella Speirs, natural voice practitioner from Manchester.

Taize music is a type of harmonic chanting developed at the Taize monastic community in France.

Now, Ella is running a second series of monthly workshops at the church. Entitled "Sing out your Song!".

She describes the workshops as "enjoying simple harmonies and songs drawn from all over the world in a relaxed friendly atmosphere". They are suitable for everyone, from beginners who sing in the shower to experts looking for something different.

The workshops run from 7 to 9 p.m. on the fourth Monday between January and June and each workshop costs 6. The first one is on January 24th.

The United Reformed Church is in Castlegate at the top of Moor Lane in Clitheroe. For more information, call Wendy Hampton on 01200 426266.
