D-Day Anthem: “Lovingly Remembered”

I was humbled to be asked to write “Lovingly Remembered” to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The anthem is based on the words of D-Day veteran Cecil Newton, who describes the “cloak of sorrow” he wears remembering all those who lost their lives. Cecil and his comrades saved the world. We must never forget.

Andrew Lloyd Webber

Today on the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the nation came together to pay tribute to all who served in the Normandy campaign. 

The specially commissioned anthem by Andrew Lloyd Webber – Lovingly Remembered – with lyrics by Don Black, was performed by singer and songwriter Naomi Kimpenu with the London Youth Chamber Choir at today’s event.
