This book is a beautiful gift for anyone in these uncertain times. It’s a book to treasure.
A gentle and kindly guide to Jill’s unique approach to song, the book is designed as a Companion for personal use for years to come
It's potentially for anyone –
whether you sing or not
whether you define yourself as ‘unmusical’
or whether you already recognise your innate ‘musicality’
Indeed, even though it contains some written music, you don’t need to be able to read this
Forged with love, it’s a S L O W book, designed to be savoured, and dipped into. It’s truly a companion for life
Alongside the narrative of how Jill’s discoveries – and some of her songs – came into being, the book contains contributions from many others who have engaged with this extraordinary approach, plus handy hints for how you can benefit in similar ways
It reveals how song can be harnessed – by anyone, in any situation and unusually it is particularly about harnessing song on our own, even in silence
It’s a unique book, which defies classification –
It helps us nurture ourselves, and grow – in awareness and understanding of ourselves and others and the world as a whole
While it’s about the power of song, it’s not particularly about singing
Nor is it designed for choirs, or teachers. Rather, it takes the reader on a personal journey, the kind of journey best embarked on in solitude
As Jill says,
“It’s a contribution to reclaiming a role for music, and in particular, song, that goes beyond the constructs of ‘musician’ versus ‘non-musician’, ‘performer’ versus ‘audience’, ‘sacred’ versus ‘profane’, and beyond the construct of music as an art or a means of manipulation, or a panacea.”
A Message from the Foundation’s Trustees
The Foundation has funded this book’s publication, and proceeds from its sale go towards these costs, which have largely involved design and printing. Most people, notably the author, have given their time and energy to this project with love and without remuneration.
We are acutely aware that this valuable book will be out of reach for increasing numbers of people being affected by the soaring cost of living crisis. We therefore invite anyone who can afford it to make a donation so the book can be made available more cheaply, or even free, for those whose means are severely limited. And if you are such a person, please don’t hesitate to tell us so we can offer you a subsidised copy.
