World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 21st April – ‘The Parting Glass’ 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:

The Parting Glass  (Traditional) 

Of all the money that e’er I spent
I spent it in good company
And all the harm that e’er I’ve done
Alas it was to none but me
And all I’ve done for want of wit
To memory now I can’t recall
So fill to me the parting glass
Good night and joy be with you all

Of all the comrades that e’er I had
They are sorry for my going away
And all the sweethearts that e’er I had
They’d wish me one more day to stay
But since it falls unto my lot
That I should rise and you should not
I’ll gently rise and softly call
Good night and joy be with you all
