Listing Detail Tabs

this selection of 11 songs includes not just Chivenor and Plymouth but the Military WAGS Choir of Catterick Garrison and the Portsmouth and Lympstone CTC Military Wives' Choirs too.

However, there's no drop-off in quality. It opens with a cracker - Bob Dylan's lovely 'Make You Feel My Love' with the solo sung by one of the leading lights of the TV series, Nicky Scott, backed by the rest of the Chivenor choir.

Clever editing enabled all the choirs to come together in the title track 'In My Dreams' which like 'Wherever You Are' is another Paul Mealor composition - a truly lovely original song. This track features the one male voice on the album, X-Factor finalist and serving soldier Jonjo Kerr - perhaps a slightly ironic choice, but a very good one. Jonjo has a fine voice that really blends well with the ladies.

All the tracks were clearly carefully chosen for the meaning behind the songs - so this is very much a mix of ballads, but none the worse for that. The Lympstone Choir didn't feature in the TV programme but they have a beautifully melodic True Love Ways whilst the Portsmouth Choir, also not seen on TV, contribute a stirring Up Where We Belong by Buffy St Marie, a difficult song that they tackle well.

Two exceptions to the chart ballads are the sailor's hymn Eternal Father, Strong To Save (For Those in Peril On The Sea) beautifully sung by the ladies of Chivenor and the lovely traditional Scottish song Silver Tassie.
