Members of JourneySongs have been singing together for 15 years, based at FUUSN, the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Newton. Our repertoire is drawn from many faith and world traditions and includes lullabies, chants, rounds, spirituals, hymns, niguns and classical music. We choose songs meaningful to the client and their caregivers.

Our gift of song offers a soothing presence to uplift spirits, calm and decrease isolation. The healing power of music and calming presence during life’s transitions can be enjoyed whether in person or virtually. In addition to the possibility of having JourneySongs in person, we offer audio and video recordings, including images of nature synced to our singing. Click "Our Music" at the top right of this page to access recordings of a few of our songs for your enjoyment.

Singing is our gift. Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted when downloading our work or requesting a sing. If you find our work valuable for supporting patients/clients at this time, please scroll down to the Contribution section below. Thank you! 


JourneySongs is an interfaith hospice choir based in Newton, MA, committed to singing for people who are terminally ill and their caregivers. We also sing at memorial services, funerals and celebrations of life at places of worship or in senior facilities.


Arranging a Visit

JourneySongs is open to singing bedside in the Metro West Boston area when invited by a client, a client’s family or caregivers as availability allows. The service is provided free of charge.

“Dear JourneySongs, 

God's timing is perfect. Your gracious band of songbirds came to my mother's bedside when we needed a word - a note - of healing. Your voices and passion shone through every song. I will never hear "Dona Nobis Pacem" the same way again. Thank you and Bless you. “ ~ Krysia B
