On Friday the 13th, Queen’s hospital was lucky enough to have The Sound of Pride NHS Choir perform live in the atrium! It was a lovely experience for all who watched and listened to the excellent members of the choir, directed by Rebecca Amissah. Three songs were performed; Angels, Raise Me Up and Abide With Me. Now, as well as these songs being absolute classics in their own right, they were selected for another reason too.
The performance was put together in aid of Dying Matters, as part of Dying Matters Week. Dying Matters is a charity that aims to promote awareness and discussion on a topic that many find hard to talk and think about: the subject of death. It is a tough subject, but one that will affect us all throughout our lives. One of the considerations that we need to make for those who have passed on is regarding funerals, and the songs performed by The Sound of Pride are the three most popular songs chosen for funerals.
