This can be sung by any 2-part choir – upper part range is B to D, lower part range is A# to A, so this should be within a singable range for even beginning choirs. There are some accidentals and discords which may require a little work, but this should be approachable for any choir, or even just 2 singers together. Part of #choirsagainstracism.

The lyrics are quite dark and may not be suitable for younger singers. Ideally this could be sung at a right-wing politician or anyone who refuses to be compassionate towards refugees and asylum seekers.
This piece was featured in a concert/reading session in Seattle on 21st July, performed by Chorosynthesis – recording coming soon! and has also been performed in England and Scotland.
