A lovely song - Tom Bowling (Robert Tear)

It is the season of remembrance and I thought I would share this rather lovely old song,  Tom Bowling, written on the death of  Charles Dibdin's brother, at sea.  However, I think it would also be a memorial to all those people who fought and died in war.  It is beautifully sung by Robert Tear and sensitively accompanied by Andre Previn.  Have a couple of minutes of peace in a frantic world.
Charles Dibdin (1745 - 1814) (from Wikipedia)


  1. I so hope that some day we have no more need for days to remember those lost in war...
    A dream which won't be filled in my life time.
