Listen to the songs that were played by Tameside Voices
. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the camera is not pointed at the choir until later and hence sound quality was not as good as we would have liked for first 3 songs. But the songs were so beautifully sung that we can still cherish them.
Here is Sylvia present a poem entitled Christmas Markets which she has written to raise funds for Dementia.
Listen to Ingrid Brindle read out the poem to the audience. This is Health.
