Chor Leoni is regarded as a leader in the Canadian male choir movement, acting as mentors and inspiration to choirs across the country. A rich full-bodied sound, innovative programming, technical precision, meticulous intonation, and versatility, coupled with an ever-present musical curiosity and commitment to the creation of new Canadian choral works, are qualities that have catapulted Chor Leoni to national and international fame since its founding by Diane Loomer C.M. in 1992.

Chor Leoni undertook the Healing Voices project at the request of music therapist Valerie Weeks, as a service to music therapists and others who work in the patient and people care field. Valerie and others have remarked on the special effect which male choral singing has for patients and clients. She and other music therapists and caregivers have used Chor Leoni recordings in their work in areas such as hospices and palliative care. Healing Voices is a compilation of previously released tracks, live performances, and new recordings selected by Valerie and artistic director, Diane Loomer.
Many members of the Callanish Community have enjoyed Chor Leoni’s performances over time and were delighted to be invited to partner with Chor Leoni in their Healing Voices Project. Part of the $20.00 charge for each CD will be retained by the Society to help sustain operations, part will be forwarded to Chor Leoni to cover the cost of CD and shipping charges. Chor Leoni has chosen Callanish as a partner because they believe that the Society and its good work exemplify the spirit in which this project was launched.
