It is a singer’s challenge and privilege to make a piece of music “sing” today; to let it live and speak to our hearts, and hopefully those listening, in a unique way for each time it is sung. In the news over the weekend, there were reports of missiles being launched into the city of Jerusalem. Having this in mind made it easier to find inspiration for the text of Leo Sowerby’s setting of Psalm 122. As I sang the melody to the words “O pray for the peace of Jerusalem”, I was thinking of those Israelis fighting to defend their city, and there was a physical place to send the next words of the psalmist, “peace be with-in thy walls, and plenteous-ness with-in thy palaces”. May these sung prayers unite together with many others across the world, and bring peace to this part of the world.
