World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 14th April – ‘How Can I Keep From Singing’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a little while but you can still take part in our fun music learning programmes from the comfort of your own home.

Tune in every Tuesday at 6pm (UK time) to join Bella Hardy for the World Of Music Choir online! Sing traditional and modern songs, harmonies and rounds. We learn by ear so you don’t have to read music, but words and scores can be downloaded here. This week’s lyrics are also below.

This live event is interactive; you can comment and ask questions, and the video will be available after the workshop to recap and sing-along to.

To view and add live comments, open this video in YouTube.

This Week’s Song:

How Can I Keep from Singing  (Robert Lowry/Pete Seeger) 

My life flows on in endless song
Above Earth’s lamentation
I hear the real, though far off hymn
That hails a new creation

   Through all the tumult and the strife 
   I hear that music ringing 
   It sounds an echo in my soul 
   How can I keep from singing? 

Although the tempest loudly roars
I hear the truth, it liveth
Although the darkness round me close
Songs in the night it giveth

   No storm can shake my inmost calm 
   While to that rock I’m clinging 
   Since love is lord of Heaven and Earth 
   How can I keep from singing?
