PLATINUM JUBILIEE CELEBRATIONS

We were honoured to sing ‘A Life Lived With Grace’ at the lighting of the beacon on Thursday 2nd June, on Teignmouth promenade. 

This is a specially commissioned piece, which many choirs sang across the UK. 

‘A Life Lived With Grace’, (Lyricist: Lucy Kiely, Music: Vincent Atueyi Chinemelu) is a melodic piece, written in tribute to The Queen. The chorus reflects: ‘A life lived with grace, a heart filled with love, peace on earth and harmony in the heavens above.’

Waiting to sing
