Some information for choirs across Scotland who might like to learn and perform this new composition from MD James Robertson, inspired by recent world events and called Bridges Not Walls. Anyone may rehearse and perform this song in exchange for a donation to the Scottish Refugee Council.
This is what James has to say:
“The underlying message of this composition is one of hope rather than protest. Whilst we are quick to condemn the building of literal walls which separate nations and communities, we also need to be aware of the metaphorical walls that each of us may build which prevent us from reaching out and actively helping our neighbours both near and far. Regardless of who we are, or where we are, we all share a common humanity. The words and music of this composition are a reminder to us all of the need for community and compassion: See the sun arising over the highest wall, together we can let more light shine when the bricks begin to fall.”
