Hymn of Peace

Earlier this year, Jubilate launched a competition to write a new hymn for Remembrance Sunday. Here’s what they did with mine, Hope for the world’s despair. It’s a recording and rather beautiful animation.

Here’s the Jubilate page with the words of this and all the shortlisted hymns.

And here’s an article about it from the Church Times:
