John Rutter: A Ukrainian Prayer

How can a composer respond to a global tragedy?

The first thing I wanted to do was write some music that would respond in my own way. I hope the meaning of the text will resonate in people’s hearts and reach out to the people of Ukraine in their hour of need. JR

A literal translation of the text is: Lord, protect Ukraine. Give us strength, faith, and hope, our Father. Amen
