World Premiere Performance Of John Rutter’s ‘A Ukrainian Prayer’
In response to the situation in the Ukraine, John Rutter has written a song, “A Ukrainian Prayer”. We were very moved by this and 39 singers from 16 countries, including many from the Ukraine, virtually joined voices.
“How can a composer respond to a global tragedy? By writing music is the most obvious thing. Like everybody, I’ve been shocked and dismayed by the events of recent days, and the first thing I wanted to do was write some music that would respond in my own way.” – John Rutter
