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 (https://johnrutter.com/contact-us), and we suggest that you may like to make a donation to the Disaster Emergency Fund instead: https://www.dec.org.uk/appeal/ukraine...
