This Christmas, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Humanist Societies have joined forces to create ‘One Voice,’ a tri service initiative all about bringing together servicemen and women from a variety of faiths to sing together. The song, ‘Una Voce – A Path to Peace’ was recorded at RAF Northolt in Aug 15 and will be released on iTunes in Dec 15.
The aptly named ‘One Voice’ group aims to promote and strengthen inter-faith dialogue within the armed forces by uniting them with a common purpose - in this case belting out a beautiful song together. But their vision doesn’t stop there. In the future they hope to launch the concept of ‘One Voice’ into the education system through a high profile music competition.
With the support of not only the Principal Director of Music RAF Central Music Services and his Army and Navy counterparts, the idea has also attracted high profile attention as two of Britain’s best loved actresses, Dame Judy Dench and Joanna Lumley have also lent their support to the campaign. Dame Judy Dench is a patron of ‘One Voice’ and has said she ‘could not be more supportive’ of the project, while Joanna Lumley believes it to be a ‘touching and important’ initiative.
You can read their mission statement online here, and also have a listen to their other, equally special recordings. The song is out on 15th December and will be available on I-tunes, Amazon and from Sycamore Publishing.
