Jersey’s choirs collaborate to release another new recording
Members of Jersey’s choirs have come together virtually to record this beautiful recital of The Road Home by Stephen Paulus. The video of the single explores our relationships with ‘home’, it’s more than a location it’s our people, our community, what we do together.
Soloist Jack Bowley sings with members from across Jersey’s choirs to raise money for local charities and highlight the plight of Jersey’s choirs who are not able to sing together.
Please buy the single and help us raise money for Caring Cooks and Age Concern Jersey.

About the choir
We do a mixture of repertoire, classical and contemporary, harmony and unison, and hold short half hour rehearsals. Members pick and choose which rehearsals they want to attend, and can take as many rehearsals ‘off’ as they like. Don’t worry if you’re shy, as because of the time delays online we lead the choir from our home but the singers remain muted and sing in the privacy of their own home!
About the charity
Aureole Music was set up in March 2020 during the Covid-19 crisis to raise money for local charities working with the lonely and the isolated in our community on Jersey. We chose to do this by bringing together singers across the island to form the Aureole Choir, a ‘virtual’ online community choir, made up of singers from all over the island. The name refers to the aura around the sun (which can also be called corona… but this is an altogether more pleasant corona!
As one of the first choirs in Europe to meet in person and sing together since the coronavirus outbreak, Aureole Choir members stood together on Ouaisne Beach to sing their latest track, Something Inside (So Strong) written by Labi Siffre as a protest against the South African Apartheid regime.
Standing around the amazing artwork created by The Jersey Sandman, the choir made a strong statement for Jersey as we stand together with all of those protesting against the shocking death of George Floyd.
