WHAT A WEEKEND THAT WAS!
“It was such a pleasure to have The Lost Sound contribute to the Hatchling project. Their delivery of Ruth Chan's score was sensitive and touching - it brought a beautiful quality to the dragon's journey and made for an unforgettable evening.”
Mervyn Millar, Director, The Hatchling
We are so proud to have been a part in this incredible, utterly inspiring event.
We sang right next to the dragon as she settled into sleep,
in the heart of Plymouth, on the Saturday night.
On Sunday, we joined a huge crowd of folk, all there to witness
the flight of The Hatchling on Plymouth Hoe.
We arrived to hear a pre recorded soundtrack featuring 2 of or singers booming out over the Hoe.
We then watched and listened as The Mayflower Acappella chorus sang her into flight!

Outdoor rehearsals are the new normal! Well, for now!
We came back to choir last April, singing outdoors on the forecourt of our sponsors Heart and Soul Funerals in Buckfastleigh. We'll stay outdoors for the beginning of this term, whilst the local Covid stats remain high. We will then move into the Town Hall, a brand new venue for us, after 14 years at St Lukes. The hall is easily ventilated and gives us more space to spread out.
Lucky for us we are singing in sunshine to start back.
We are holding an AUDITION WORKSHOP on Saturday 25th SEPTEMBER from 10:30am - 12 noon in Buckfastleigh. We will take you through one of our warm-ups and then some harmony exercises and into some songs. Nothing too scary!
If you are a confident singer who can sing in tune easily, we'd love to hear you. The session will be fairly informal and definitely friendly - we want you to feel at ease.
Have a read of our website to see what we do and get an idea of how we work
We rehearse on Tuesday nights in Buckfastleigh, 7:30pm to 9:45pm
The enormously wonderful Simon and Jane from Heart and Soul Funerals
have generously continued their sponsorship of the choir, through this difficult time of no concerts.
Our 'Homegrown Harmony,' project was able to go ahead because of their funding. Their offer of outside rehearsal space saved our Xmas videos and have meant we can sing again in small groups. We are enormously grateful and lucky to have their support
They have supported us for 3 years now and their generosity and kindness
have enabled us to buy our own lighting rig, develop our new logo
and record our EP. They have enabled us to be better!
They have an excellent Blog on their website about all things associated
with Funeral care and it is really worth a read!
They are industry award winners and continue to lead by example,
bringing funeral care into the modern age and offer the very best of celebrant training.
