A Ukrainian Prayer by John Rutter with The Cambridge Singers

How can a composer respond to a global tragedy? The first thing I wanted to do was write some music that would respond in my own way. I hope the meaning of the text will resonate in people's hearts and reach out to the people of Ukraine in their hour of need. JR

A literal translation of the text is:
Lord, protect Ukraine. Give us strength, faith, and hope, our Father. Amen

The score is available for free by contacting the team (, and we suggest that you may like to make a donation to the Disaster Emergency Fund instead:
