Connecting Spirits - Songs of Remembrance - Rita Lindsay and Flo Bourke
The debut album by Rita Lindsay and Flo Bourke.
Rita Lindsay and Flo Bourke were both members of Connecting Spirits 2006 trip to the Western front in Europe. These talented young women sang the National Anthem with Belinda Eastham at our special services and at the Menin Gate. Flo also played the piano at Talbot House, while Rita played her guitar and sang to the Staff and Students of St Aloysis College in Menen during our visit there. Both Flo and Rita were so inspired by the stories of these men and the sacrifices they and their families made in wartime, they expressed their feelings and personal responses to the story of the Great War through music.
The CD produced has a range of songs that deal with the tragedy and horror of the war and how it has impacted on the men of 1914 -18 and the generations that followed. The lack of recognition given to indigenous soldiers is a powerful thread through the music of Rita Lindsay and she brings to the WW1 story a very special voice on this little known aspect of our wartime past.
