FreeThinker Posted May 26, 2015 Report Share Posted May 26, 2015 Libera has a new video tribute to immigants, particularly the Irish immigrants who came to America during the Great Famine of the 1840's. I don't know if American school children are still taught this song, but every child of my generation learned and sang it and this is the most beautiful version I've ever heard. There was a movement back in the thirties to make this the national anthem rather than The Star-Spangled Banner because it was less militaristic.It's a beautiful piece of music and Libera perform it with their usual skill and emotion.
