World Of Music Choir: Tuesday 3rd November – Saints & Sinners 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: SAINTS & SINNERS
(David Francey)

It was Sunday morning in our town
And I sat on my steps and I stared at the ground
And I bowed my head while they shuffled past
All the saints being called to the morning mass

   Chorus
And off in the distance there rang a bell
Way off in the distance there rang a bell
And it rang for the saints and the sinners as well
Way off in the distance there rang a bell

I remember the lessons of Sunday school
And I can’t help but think maybe I’m the fool
But I see no sign of a greater plan
Just the joy and the sorrow of my fellow man

And here we stand while life rushes past
Between the first breath and the last
And here we stand between East and West
And here we stand between birth and death

I was watching the news the other night
There was a war on the Left; there was a war on the Right
And it’s no surprise that it’s us or them
It’s a long way from heaven to Bethlehem
