Bette was a pianist in her youth and also had a lovely voice.
We don’t have recordings of her own performances
but here are some pieces she enjoyed listening to
and sometimes dancing or singing along to.

She would do a very amusing "fire-dance" round the living room to this
"Hiawatha" song composed and sung by her son David

Other music she would sing along to included "Old time music hall"
(here’s a video of singalongs sung by David illustrating some of those)
Old time music hall

Two other videos of particular interest:
A French folk song arrangement "Rossignol du bois sauvage", which Bette was particularly fond of
Rossignol du bois sauvage

A poem by Stan addressed to Bette, to the music of "Silver hairs among the gold"
To my wife
