Military Wives Choir - 'Wherever You Are'

Just had to share this link - the music is lovely and the words so meaningful.  

Gareth Malone who is a British Choirmaster put together a Military Wives Choir (their husbands were all away serving in Afghanistan).  He had this piece of music composed by Paul Mealor an outstanding Welsh composer.  The words came from excerpts from letters and poems that were written between the Military Wives and their Husbands and one of the women had the words 'Wherever you are, my love will keep you safe' engraved on a bracelet her husband had given her.

They performed this song live at the Royal Albert Hall for the Festival of Remembrance.  The song is going to be released on 19 December 2011 with proceeds going to Royal British Legion and SSAFA.

  1. Love it, we must hope it get's to number one this year, the way Chris Evans is pushing it, it won't be because no one has heard of it.
