Performed by The Bach Choir on the Signum Classics label and with music by Will Todd and words by Michael Rosen.  The title work on reflects on the usual every day rhythms of of our lives and by chance was poignantly released on Friday 27th March 2020 at a time when most of the world’s major cities were in lockdown.

On the day of the launch the choir got together for an online singalong to celebrate the release of the album.
