Tim & Heather Scott have selected a few songs, and in the style of Desert Island Disc they have commented on the choices. They did share this among the Songsters , but then thought everyone might like to hear them. Please see below what choices they made .
While we are still unable to meet and sing ( and while we are enjoying ‘summer breaks’), Tim had the idea for a Songster ‘Desert Island Disc’ project.
You may be feeling isolated and deserted at the minute, or cast adrift, but be assured: you are not alone or forgotten ?
The idea is that each Thursday a songster chooses up to 3 songs that take them through their spiritual/ physical life. You can post the song on WhatsApp or just give the words. Please write 1 or 2 sentences about why you chose this song.
I will start this week and then approach others with the opportunity to share in the following weeks.
Feel free to volunteer – just contact me first so I can make sure all is orderly. Thanks
So watch out for my Desert Island Disc offering during the day!!
This song takes me back to my childhood – I can still hear my home songster brigade singing it.
My mum was (and still is at age 89) the songster pianist, so I vividly remember her practising the accompaniment.
As an aside, this song also holds memories for Tim, as he remembers singing it as a solo when he was in the YP sections.
When Tim and I were 20 something DINKies (Dual Income, No Kids) we lived and worked in London and soldiered at The Regent Hall. These were exciting days – full of potential and promise. Under the leadership of Brian Willetts (a talented and sensitive musician) the RH Songsters recorded a cd at Abbey Road studios (of Beatle fame).
This song captures my memories of the time. (Listen carefully and you might hear Tim and myself singing.)
This song brings me right up to the here and now – a Zoom production of a song we sing in Chatham Songsters. In fact, the music is currently in my songster folder.
As I look back over my life in these songs, I realise Jesus always was, always is and always will be there, even though ‘things change’.
I hope you enjoy these songs.
