Robert Coombs' (tenor) and Alan Brierley's (musical director) mums have just passed on. Alan's mum wants Abide with Me at her funeral. This was my mum's favourite hymn. She died in 1994 after a long illness and I found great comfort in singing with the choir.
Here is an audiovisual of my thoughts and feelings about the hymn and its connection to my family.
Abide with Me
Here are the images - I didn't add titles to the movie as I didn't know how at the time
