Please SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube Channel :) In Remembrance - Youtube live concert video

Angel Sculpture, Église St.Joseph, Orleans, On

Here is a personal favourite from our St. Barnabas Spring 2016 concert.

"In Remembrance" is a beautiful contemporary composition by Eleanor Daley, a Canadian composer of choral music.

The words, from the poem,  "Do not stand at my grave and weep" by Elizabeth Frye.
My sweet Mom, in her favourite spot where she could watch the birds
This was a poignant song for both myself and Pete. It was the poem we chose for my Mother's funeral service back in 2010. It takes a lot of focus to sing it, but reminds me of her kindness and her gentle personality.

Mom was our biggest fan, attending concerts until she could no longer go out. I hope you love listening to this song as much as I love singing it.

Audio: Tom Barnes.  Recorded at St. Barnabas Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, June 4th, 2016.

Videographers: Luc Nugent. Kolin Casagrande
Editing: Pierre Massie
