A group of British stars – including Joanna Lumley, Samantha Morton and Lindsay Duncun – have set poems to music for a new charity album.

Words For You features 27 poems, and will raise money for I CAN – a charity that works to support the development of speech, language and communication skills in all children with a special focus on those who find this hard: children with speech, language and communication needs

Lumley will read Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18, set to Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No 8, and a John Betjeman poem. Others on the album will include Honor Blackman, who will read Daffodils by William Wordsworth set to Tchaikovsky, and actor Geoffrey Palmer, who will read three poems. Buffy’s Anthony Head has also taken part.

The CD is available here.
