Editorial Musings with Basil Ramsey

Sing for peace

With the grim background of atrocity, feuding and outright warfare, this planet witnesses almost endless tragedy and grief, whereas the human race is capable of the opposite given a resolve to live in peace rather than to be torn to pieces.

Listening to Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' quartet today, the capacity of Man for such beauty and yet also horrific destruction is shockingly perverse. We all know the facts and face the TV pictures of tragedies that litter the planet.

I am not routinely encapsulating that which is known. I join as a passionate member of a World chorus unreservedly committed to singing of peace and love for all mankind regardless of colour or race. May we all sing for peace.
