Military Wives Choir: Song Words From Their Letters to Husbands in Afghanistan

This video is worth watching.

Please read this first as it makes the music more enjoyable. Gareth Malone, a Choir Master for the London Symphony Orchestra, gathered a group of military wives whose husbands are in Afghanistan and turned them into a choir. They wrote a song based on excerpts from letters written by the couples whilst apart and this is the beautiful result. The single is out in the UK. Thousands have been pre-ordered and all the money raised is going to military charities. Enjoy!

No matter what issues surround war, compassion stirs for the wives, families and the men and women who are in harm’s way.

A Little Music Today

Deception Pass Park, WA State

I don’t have much to say today, (now that’s news!) so I’m sharing a beautiful rendition of “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” by Andre Reiu and his orchestra.  The video is over 6 minutes long, so if this music is your thing, you can listen while you do something else if time pressured. Enjoy!

“Over the Backyard Fence” blog has invited me to be a guest on Wednesday, September 28.  I wrote a story one might share over the fence with a neighbor, a glimpse of a wee adventure growing up in a small mountain town.  Join me tomorrow, Wednesday Sept 28, here.
