Singing Medicine ® is a journey of singing play, interactive songs and lullabies, perfect for parents and carers to sing with children. Singing has been proven to improve health and wellbeing, and this CD is ideal for adults to sing with both poorly and healthy children – it really is medicine in every sense!

Ex Cathedra has an extensive education and participation programme, and has won awards for its work in the field of Arts in Health. From an idea of Sally Spencer, nurse and Ex Cathedra Vocal Tutor, and led by Director of Education Rebecca Ledgard, Singing Medicine was created by the Ex Cathedra Vocal Tutor team in 2004 to bring the special benefits of singing play to children in hospital. Singing Medicine has been running at Birmingham Children’s Hospital ever since, and has also been delivered at Great Ormond Street, Warwick, Heartlands and John Radcliffe hospitals. Most of the songs on the CD are written by members of Ex Cathedra’s Education Team.

All proceeds from the sale of this CD will be used to fund Singing Medicine sessions for children in hospital. For more information, visit our Singing Medicine page.
