Very moving.

    Didn’t recognise this tune so went straight to google.

    Thank you so much for making me aware of such a stunning piece of music.

    Aside from the classical version I found a very moving interpretation by Annie Lennox with the City of London choir.

    Made my Sunday morning .

    Oddly enough I thought of Annie Lennox when this thread came up. Her "Hurting Time" gets me every time.

    Heard this yrs ago. A bit obscure but the words have such meaning to them. Any Dad who has a son can feel the pain in the lyrics.

    Joe Walsh's 'Song For Emma'. It's about his three year-old daughter who was killed in a car accident.

    The second verse of the hymn "How great thou art":

    And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
    When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur,
    And hear the brook, and feel the gentle breeze

    Although my father died 25 years ago I still cannot sing this verse as I get a lump in my throat. It brings back so many memories.

    My Nan had How Great Thou Art played at her funeral about 25 years ago, so has always struck a chord with me.
    About a month after the funeral we attended a friends wedding. I didn't know it was used as a wedding hymn aswell, so a few people in the congregation turned around to wonder what all this sniffling was from the back of the church.

    Little boy blue https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNMk3KOn3ss ......... My mother used to sing this to me when I was going to sleep when I was little. I still cry when I hear or sing it. I don't know whether it is thinking of the little boy or of my mother.

    Henryk Górecki: Symphony of Sorrowful Songs - 2nd Movement
    Sung by Dawn Upshaw

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5fg8-VWNo0

    Words from the 3 Movements;

    First Movement
    My son, my chosen and beloved
    Share your wounds with your mother
    And because, dear son, I have always carried you in my heart,
    And always served you faithfully
    Speak to your mother, to make her happy,
    Although you are already leaving me, my cherished hope.
    (Lamentation of the Holy Cross Monastery from the "Lysagóra Songs" collection. Second half of the 15th century)

    Second Movement
    No, Mother, do not weep,
    Most chaste Queen of Heaven
    Support me always.
    "Zdrowas Mario." (*)
    (Prayer inscribed on wall 3 of cell no. 3 in the basement of "Palace," the Gestapo's headquarters in Zadopane; beneath is the signature of Helena Wanda Blazusiakówna, and the words "18 years old, imprisoned since 26 September 1944.")
    (*) "Zdrowas Mario" (Ave Maria)—the opening of the Polish prayer to the Holy Mother

    Third Movement
    Where has he gone
    My dearest son?
    Perhaps during the uprising
    The cruel enemy killed him

    Ah, you bad people
    In the name of God, the most Holy,
    Tell me, why did you kill
    My son?

    Never again
    Will I have his support
    Even if I cry
    My old eyes out

    Were my bitter tears
    to create another River Oder
    They would not restore to life
    My son

    He lies in his grave
    and I know not where
    Though I keep asking people
    Everywhere

    Perhaps the poor child
    Lies in a rough ditch
    and instead he could have been
    lying in his warm bed

    Oh, sing for him
    God's little song-birds
    Since his mother
    Cannot find him

    And you, God's little flowers
    May you blossom all around
    So that my son
    May sleep happily
    (Folk song in the dialect of the Opole region)

    StT.

    The second verse has huge significance to me. My Dad was in the 8th Army in WW2 and he went through North Africa, Italy and eventually was demobbed in Austria. He loved nature and we have a picture postcard which he sent from Austria to my mother which shows steep sided mountains rising up dramatically from a tranquil valley and he writes rapturously about the scene. The contrast for a lad who grew up in the Cynon valley in the 20's and 30's could not have been greater surely!
