Product Description

Product Description

‘Wherever You Are’, performed by the stars of the BBC TV series The Choir along with their choir master Gareth Malone, 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.

Ordering a pre - release CD meant that I got my copy early. Lucky me! The song was already so familiar from the radio and television - and it still moved me to tears. Paul Mealor's lovely lyrics, put together from the letters, poems and prayers of the Military Wives and their men as they served in Afghanistan are deeply moving.
They are also reproduced on the CD insert, although the words are sung so clearly that they are almost unnecessary.

The story of how Gareth Malone put together a choir of military wives and partners to give them an alternative focus for their lives whilst their men were in Afghanistan has now been told many times in the media. Gareth's exploits in forming choirs have been the focus of three previous TV programmes, and his skill in drawing out the best in people via the medium of choral music is unsurpassed. This fourth choir challenge has been the one that has really caught the imagination of the public.

This song emerged as a performance piece to be sung by the choir at the televised Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. Following the screening of both the Festival and the final episode of The Choir - Military Wives, it became clear this song HAD to be released. Nine months ago these women had never sung together and very few had any experience of singing. You genuinely wouldn't know. The soloist, Samantha Stevenson, has to be mentioned - what a truly beautiful voice.
The additional Paul Mealor composition on the CD, A Spotless Rose, is sung by the well-known choir Tenebrae. It's a lovely extra surprise, an exquisitely sung piece that has a real Christmas feel.
A minimum of 40p from each CD is being split between the Royal British Legion and the Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen Families Association - Forces Help.

Well here goes for what its worth,I have been in the Military most of my life and at 63 can say I have seen and heard stuff that still haunts me today.

Take a bunch of woman,wives and sweethearts of serving Royal Marines,Royal Navy etc. and just prior to the Marines going to Afghanistan ask the wives,Fancy Joining A Choir Ladies,seeing and feeling the pain and worry of these ladies manifest itself in tears and jumpy nerves brings it into your home,not knowing when there will be a knock on the door and hearing that there has been an incident!involving your loved one and trying to cope with that,Could You.
Well Gareth Malone took that bunch of woman and moulded them and called them a choir,he then went to Plymouth and done the same there till the two Choirs were around 100 strong,then he hit them with their first public appearance,the Chivenor choir were going to sing in Barnstable,The Pannier Market no less,that was the start,then again he took them to the exalted grounds of Sandhurst and in front of all the newly Passed out Officers and Staff had both Choirs sing,IN LATIN,then a real bouncy song,Bugle Boy of Company C,it was a great success which got them a Standing Ovation from all the Officers.
On the 12th November the full Choir went to London,in front of the Royal Family and audience,and all those watching on TV,sang Wherever You Are,there was not a dry eye in The Royal Albert Hall,again they received a thunderous round of applause and rightly so,the nerves were popping the tears were flowing and it was outstanding.
THE SONG.

A beautiful, meaningful piece of music. I hope this makes Christmas number one rather than the usual X-factor tat. Well done girls and release more of the same soon.

Bah humbug to you Alexcatt97! Have you no sense of occasion, appreciation and consideration for others. The first thing in life you have to remember is that appreciation of art is in the eyes and ears of the individual. The second thing you need to recognise is the Military Wives' choir is not the result of second rate 'wannmabe' media shows. These are real people, singing from the heart - a group of ordinary wives and girlfriends living their relationship lives in the most extraordinary circumstances and fearful that as each term of duty comes up they might never see their loved ones again. The sentiments within this song are their sentiments -the songwriter actually used their letters and thoughts as the genesis for this song. Would you have the balls to stand up and sing in front of the Royal Family and millions of others tuning in in the Royal Albert Hall and perform a tear jerking rendition. I know I couldn't and I doubt if you would either. I think they are absolutely amazing as does the majority of the British population who have taken them to their hearts and made this recording outstrip all the other Christmas No 1 hopefuls. Of course - you are entitled to your opinion but, if you have nothing nice to say at this special time of year say nothing you mean spirited person.

Knock this if you like but at least there is emotion, feeling and meeing in this song to partners in dangerous places...I have an incredibly soft spot for Gareth Malone.
