“Aberfan”, Final Hymn

aberfan final tribute no sound THUMBNAIL_3

I discovered footage from the AP Archives that had no sound.  Here is a shot from that 5 minutes of film taken at the mass funeral of victims of the Aberfan Disaster on 27th October 1966.

Here is a demo excerpt from Aberfan, Final Hymn, “Loving Shepherd of Thy Sheep”, one of two hymns sung at the service on the hillside.

 

Aberfan (7 pianos, percussion, voice and tools of rescue) is a sponsored project of New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA), a 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization.  Make your contribution here.  I am currently seeking funds to complete the studio recording.
