In July 2015 we sang at the Vatican in Rome and the Royal Albert Hall in London. In September 2016 we hope to sing the beautiful Street Requiem at Carnegie Hall which proves dreams can come true if you wish for them hard enough.
We roamed around Rome, Florence and Milan,
went to Old London Town and Albert Hall did jam
We lived the life of a wandering minstrel
for a week or two
and made many treasured memories before we were through.
Sacred songs were sung well loved by many.
When I got home I could not think of any
thing better that would ever be as good
as singing where we had sung and
standing where we had stood.
But another amazing opportunity
has just come into view.
It is on my tomorrow’s horizon
and is something I badly want to do.
That opportunity is to sing the Street Requiem overseas.
The Street Requiem was written for the world’s homeless communities.
The lyrics are full of compassion and love and
the music is very sweet.
The songs were written to give dignity to the people
who live and die on the street.
A dream is a wish your heart makes
when you are fast asleep.
Singing the Street Requiem in Boston and New York
is something we need to keep
working towards so we can say
our dream which was on tomorrow’s horizon
is going to come true today.
