Introducing Silver Memories: Our Vera. Dame Vera Lynn's unique voice cut across class barriers. Strong and melodious with a fetching tremolo, it was a voice which stirred the emotions with its message of hope, nostalgia, love and patriotism. More than any other singer or musician she captured and articulated the emotions and moods of a Britain under siege, highlighting at the same time the potency of cheap music in wartime. Our Vera is a survey of Dame Vera's biggest hits, ranging from We'll Meet Again, to (There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs Of Dover, and many more tracks. The thoughtfully written booklet notes provide a fascinating insight into the stories behind the repertoire and the composers. Silver Memories: Our Vera forms the first of many batches to come in the Silver Memories series. Silver Memories is a 24 hour a day nostalgia radio service distributed by satellite across Australia. The service started in Brisbane in 2007 specifically for the aged and residents of aged care homes. Dame Vera Lynn is the Patron of Silver Memories. Silver Memories plays music from the 1920s to the early 1960s as well as old radio serials, old time comedy and features on the great stars of the past of stage and screen. University research has shown that listening to Silver Memories has beneficial effects for older listeners. The principle behind Silver Memories is Reminiscence Therapy - familiar music is a powerful means of evoking happy memories of a person's youth. Silver Memories uses the power of music to change people's lives and this series of albums revisits music whose power to heal, to inspire and to evoke memories has never been in doubt.
