Prayer for Ukraine, by Mykola Lysenko
Lyrics by Oleksandr Konysky.
Many children will never see their fathers again.
Many children won't be able to sit by their grandparents listening to tales of long ago.
Many children will never again play with their cousins
Many children will find themselves isolated through culture and language.
Maybe we can bring children from around the world together by performing a Piece for Peace. A call for all youth orchestras and choirs to connect through music for World Peace.
(In Italian: Un messaggio della gioventù per la gioventù: Questo brano è dedicato non solo ai bambini coinvolti nel conflitto in ucraina ma a TUTTI I bambini che subiscono i drammi della guerra senza distinzioni di razza,colore e religione. Un appello per la pace mondiale.)Tweet
