Threshold Singers of Madison
The all-women Threshold Singers honor the ancient tradition of singing at the bedsides of people who are struggling: some with living, some with dying. The voice, as the original human instrument, is a true and gracious vehicle for compassion and comfort. The singers are provided an opportunity to share the sacred gifts of our voices at life's thresholds. When we are invited to a bedside, we visit in small groups. We invite families and caregivers to join us in song or to participate by listening. We choose songs to respond to musical taste, spiritual direction, and physical capacity. The songs may include rounds, chants, lullabies, hymns, spirituals, and choral music. The service is our gift; there is no charge. We gratefully accept donations for our ongoing expenses.
