What could be more lovely at the end of life than being surrounded by the voices of angels in harmony? Hallowell is a local group of singers who offer songs for healing and comfort at the bedsides of the ill or dying. We are a component of Brattleboro Area Hospice’s services and are organized and facilitated by Kathy Leo. All of the singers have been through a hospice orientation and are familiar and comfortable with the hospice philosophy of care, appropriate behavior, and confidentiality. We offer a choice of music ranging from liturgical, spiritual, quiet and melodic pieces, shape note songs, to more spirited and uplifting traditional hymns or gospel type music, depending upon the needs of the patient. Singers may range from a duo to many and are available to sing at private homes, nursing homes or hospital rooms.
The response of patients who are sung to is often emotional and calming. Music can open hearts, quiet fears and touch all who are present, including family members, staff and singers. Families or staff may request our free singing services through Brattleboro Area Hospice, or you can call us directly. Although we mostly sing for hospice patients, we are available for anyone who is interested or in need of songs that heal.
