This issue of Voices contains an intriguing range of articles, about the humanizing potential of music therapy in end of life care (Zoe Tao), sequential working memory recall in neurodivergent and neurotypical individuals (Edward Todd Schwartzberg & Michael J Silverman), the role of music listening in vibroacoustic treatment (Elsa Campbell, Birgitta Burger & Esa Ala-Ruona), the therapeutic value of recording in music therapy (Kevin Kirkland & Shannon Nesbitt), and proposed mechanisms of change in the arts-based psychotherapies (Anna Gerge, Jane Hawes, Lotti Eklöf & Inge Nygaard Pedersen). There is also a review of Elizabeth Schwartz, Sharon R. Boyle and Rebecca Engen’s Functional Voice Skills for Music Therapists (Sylka Uhlig) and – last but not least – there is a beautiful tribute to the life and work of Benedikte Scheiby (Seung-A Kim & Kenneth Aigen).
