DUMMERSTON On a freezing cold afternoon recently, a small group of men and women met outside the home of Conrad Wilson.
Wilson, 84, lay inside the house on a hospital bed, dying of lung cancer.
The group calls itself Hallowell, and they came out to Wilson's rambling farm house to sing for him and for his family.

BRATTLEBORO -- Peter Amidon had a simple request for 30 or so singers he was leading in song one recent Sunday afternoon.
"Let’s make that the most beautiful chord in the world," he said.
And sure enough, they did.
"We'll be talking about birth and death practices, and how in the natural cycles of life, everything is born and dies - including us."
