Belinda and Heather have made several CDs together, comprising a wide variety of styles and in particular, English Song. Since the end of 2009 Heather has been enjoying her collaboration with Belinda and Lance Pierson as part of ‘In Voice And Verse’.

Heather greatly enjoys working with young people with whom she has co-ordinated many musical events in aid of charitable organisations in schools and churches.
