When Death Was Behind Me

This song was inspired by the dreadful closure of the Italian charity Mare Nostrum in January 2015. The organisation was charged with rescuing African migrants from abandoned ships and in the one year it ran rescued over 100,000 people. The words are based on quotes of 2 rescued people. The song is written to a blues chord progression and fits with other African American blues like Wade in the Water and Sometimes  I Feel Like a Motherless Child. Special for this summer: £5 no license to buy. All money from the sale of this song will be donated to the Refugee Camp at Calais

The package contains a pdf but if you would like sound files as well just email me and I’ll send them over. Thanks.

Over the Manger of My Heart

The Scots writer Maureen Sangster sent my sister a Christmas card with this exquisitely simple poem on it: Star above the manger of the heart. This phrase seeded the inspiration for this simple but beautiful round.
