My wife Sheryl’s friend Mary has suggested the song ‘Loving Kindness’ by Howard Goodall, a song arranged for four part choir and sung here by the Mirabile Vocal Ensemble. It is dedicated by the composer to the sacrifice and courage of health workers during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic and is based on Buddhist and Hindu texts, 

Mary remarks that having spent a day with others learning to sing this very difficult piece she has deep respect to these singers singing separately in their homes.  In fact one of the singers is her niece.

May you be happy, may you be well 
May you be safe and sound 
May you be peaceful, may you be at ease 
With love in your heart and all around
