“Aberfan”, Final Hymn

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.
