British military wives’ moving love song to troops

No 392 Posted January 25, 2012

Okay, this post may not fit this blog’s theme of citizen activism — or perhaps it does — but it is just too, too touching to ignore — a testament to the wondrous power of love.

Wherever You Are is a moving love song written by Royal Wedding composer Paul Mealor for the choir to sing at The Royal British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance. The music is set to a poem compiled from letters to and from the servicemen and their wives on a 6-month tour of duty in Afghanistan. It is the raw emotion of the song that has touched so many of the British public.
