  1. This is a very moving piece! Had me in tears! The song says everything… Do you have the sheet music available? or song lyrics? That would make my day! xx

  2. Please where can we get the sheet music for this song. Would so love to learn it. It is so poignant and emotional. Well done to all.

  3. What a tremendous finale to what was a truly inspiring series. Gareth was superb in bringing out the confidence, talent and bravery of all the singers. The song and the performance at The Royal Albert Hall had me in tears…it was absolutely brilliant and very poignant in watching the choir. Please may I add my congratulations to others for your magical composition and could you please release this on CD as I would be delighted to buy this for all my family and friends. Thank you once again.

  4. just heard it’s going to be released on 19th Dec, yeah! Thanks Issy for your post too, definately will be downloading it. Being a wife of a PO in Navy the emotions and sentiments of the song are incredible. Congratulations to you all, I bet you weren’t expecting this at the beginning of the experience.

  5. My wife and I enjoyed the whole series and the end performance was absolutely wonderful. Hope you all can carry on with your singing and we wish you all the very best for the future and thanks again for the music. Will be buying the cd as soon as its released.

  6. Words just cannot describe the wonderful feeling that “Wherever you are” provokes, the journey undertaken by these ladies is amazing (as is Gareth!!!)
    The song you penned for them truly holds the magic and emotion that only these couples and families can share, others can only imagine!
    May they all be safe in their love be it in Afghanistan or here at home in Endlands green and pleasant land!!! God bless you all”"

  7. A truly inspirational piece of writing and singing – helps to put the great back in Great Britain. Hope the sheet music is released as many choirs would love to sing this and raise money for the Royal British Legion, SSAFA and Help for Heroes. Lets hope all military wives and partners have a HappY Christmas this year.

  8. what a beautiful song, moves me to tears every time. Would it be possible to email m’he a set of the lyrics please?
