A MUM-OF-THREE has spoken about her love of being part of Warminster’s Military Wives Choir, as an album which includes performances by over 60 of the choirs nationwide has been released.

Nikki Bannister from Warminster, joined military wives from across the country for the commemorative project to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Music for the album centres on five original songs by composers from the worlds of classical, pop and film music.

Mrs Bannister said: “I loved standing side by side with what felt like an army of choir sisters. Nothing will ever compare to that first sample of the recording we got to listen to. I realised I was part of something incredibly special.”

“If I could recommend one thing to every lady with a military connection, it would be to join your local Military Wives Choir.

“Before I joined the choir, I was quiet and didn’t know many people in the area. I moved to Warminster not knowing anyone, my husband is in the Army.

“I am now in such a great place because of the love and support I get from the choir. I have been able to lose my fears, and perform in a wide variety of concerts, and even had a go at singing solos.”

The album, Remember, is now on sale through Amazon.
