When You Stand With Me

There's not much we can do about the plebisite in Australia at the moment. All voters are being asked by mail if they would support a change to the law to allow same sex marriage. You can imagine the sentiments being expressed for and against in various media and social media.

One of the awful aspect of this is how it must feel for the folks being voted on. What an exercise in humiliation. I'm sorry. I'm sorry you have to go through this and all the virtiol it has stirred up. 

Anyway this is the best thing I can think of to do. If you and your choir feel the same way, please sing this. I know I'm totally hetero normy and I hope you will forgive that I wrote a story which isn't mine.

The licence is free. Sing it. Photocopy it. Share it. As you wish. I hope it helps.  

I'm talking to a dear friend and professional tenor about making a recording of this, so we'll see where that leads.


Here's a solo version. In a higher key which I think would be better for soloists.
