A Call to Hope
Tommy Sands - © Elm Grove Music

This piece of music was born out of troubled times. At the deadline hour of midnight at Stormont Castle Parliament Buildings 1998 when no news was emerging from The Talks, a TV man, with a live camera running on his shoulder, asked me to play something. Memories of bitter days gone by were in my mind but when I put the whistle in my mouth I had no idea what would come out. This was the tune that emerged which I later named "A Call to Hope."
