What is Sweet and Low?

Sweet and Low is a unique, vocals only, therapeutic CD, ideal for use in dementia and nursing care, particularly for one-to-one care and bedrooms.

 

The only sound is the human voice singing in a contralto range which is deep, peaceful and soothing.  

 

All the "jangle" and "high frequency" instruments of standard CDs have been removed, and Sandra's distinctive and smooth, solo contralto voice provides a calming and tranquil experience.

 

It has been designed especially for people aged 75 and over, who are weary and ill, and are not able to benefit from standard music.  It allows them to access the health and emotional benefits of engaging with songs from their era, by paring down all the elements of standard music, leaving only the pure vocal.

The sound quality has been deliberately designed to sound as if a family member, or carer is sitting right next to the person, singing to them one-to-one.

 

The science bit - 

Especially prevalent in those living with dementia, many people's ability to distinguish a well loved song among mixed or unexpected sounds, (such as drums and backing music) becomes more difficult in older age. This means the actual song becomes lost in an often distressing onslaught of noise. 

That's why Sweet and Low was made.

The CD was trialled in 30 care homes across the UK, in pre-production, to great acclaim - please see reviews section for more fantastic feedback.

What type of songs are on the cd?

These are the songs that people over the age of 75 would have been singing in their childhoods, teens and early twenties - the songs are SO ingrained into their early years, they can access them much easier than later songs. These older people will definitely know these songs, but more importantly, they will have strong happy feelings associated with them.

The CD is 32 minutes long.
