World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 30th June – ‘Hard Times Come Again No More’ led by Bella Hardy

Band on the Wall’s doors may be shut for a 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 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 if you would like the score it can be downloaded from this dropbox, where we’ll also upload an mp3 of the song to sing-along to after the session!

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

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

Email learning@bandonthewall.org to become an official choir member!


This Week’s Song: Hard Times Come Again No More
(Stephen Foster)

Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears
Oh hard times come again no more

Chorus: Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
               Hard times, hard times, come again no more
               Many days you have lingered around my cabin door
               Oh hard times come again no more

While we seek mirth and beauty and music bright and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though their voices are silent, their pleading looks will say
Oh hard times come again no more

 

‘Hard Times’ is a well known American parlour song written by Stephen Foster. It was published in New York by Firth, Pond & Co. in 1854 as Foster’s Melodies No. 28.
