The Freedom Chorus perform their Freedom Flame Anthem song for Remembrance Day 2020

With regular events for Remembrance Day cancelled due to the current coronavirus restrictions, Hull Freedom Chorus have produced a virtual performance to mark the day in a new way.

Freedom Flame Anthem, music and lyrics by Clare Drury.

Clare Drury, leader of the Freedom Chorus, said: “The song is shared as a way for us to mark Remembrance Day at a time when we are restricted from marking it in the normal way due to Covid restrictions. A community response to a need to pay respects to ‘fallen generations gone before’, with a message of hope and peace for the future.

“The Freedom Flame Anthem has been recorded by 30 members of the Freedom Chorus individually and mixed into a whole virtual choir.”
