Yesterday was very emotional for me in so many ways. I belong to a choir called “Laughter and Lyrics” which meets every Friday morning in the restaurant of the Everyman Theatre. We have only been singing together for a few months and we are all of different ages and from varied backgrounds. But I think we gel as a choir and make a beautiful sound together. Of course singing is very emotional at any time but yesterday was especially so as we had been invited to sing at a service to celebrate the life of the much loved father of one the ladies in the choir. The service was in a beautiful little church in one of the most idyllic villages in the Cotswolds, Dumbleton, and the sun shone on it.
As I sang in that beautiful church with our choir of wonderful ladies I felt privileged to be there, blessed to be alive, and grateful to be me.
One of the songs we are practicing for our show in July is “Believe”, written by Lin Marsh.
It is often sung at final assemblies here in the UK when pupils are moving on to a new school. It is so uplifting and affirming.
I hope you enjoy listening to this You Tube version of it, and know that it is meant for you.
