EDIT by Dave: Video of Hayley's performance is now here: For The Fallen The BBC are now reporting that Hayley will be involved in ths year's Festival of Remembrance, therefore, I will quote the relevant posts into this new thread.
I don't suppose Hayley is a part of this year's festival, or wouldn't we have heard about it by now?
I don't have the official answer yet but I am making enquiries.
However... On the BBC website, Radio 2 programmes for 13th November, Festival of Remembrance highlights, www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/proginfo/radio/2010/wk46/sat.shtml Hayley is mentioned as being one of the voices taking part but it does not state in what capacity. As BBC TV broadcasts the same event (but details are not yet announced) it therefore seems entirely possible that we will both hear and see Hayley on radio/TV that day.
Well I certainly hope so, watch this space... if I get confirmation of this I will start a new thread for 2010.
Festival of Remembrance 2010Saturday 13 November 9:10pm - 10:45pm BBC1 Huw Edwards presents coverage of the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, which pays tribute to all victims of war and conflict. The programme features music by the bands of the RAF and Royal Marines and the voices of Hayley Westenra, the Soldiers and Kerry Ellis as well as a performance by guitarist Brian May.
I think Hayley may be singing Karl Jenkins' setting of "For The Fallen", as featured on the 10th Anniversary Special Edition of "The Armed Man - A Mass For Peace". This is due to be given its world premiere performance at this year's Festival of Remembrance.
Bandana Management has confirmed Richard's earlier suspicions that Hayley will be performing "For The Fallen" by Karl Jenkins, at the Festival of Remembrance on this coming Saturday.
I will, of course, endeavour to record it and make the video available shortly thereafter.
Thanks for that Dave. Unfortunately we will be out at a concert on Saturday, so you have saved my life. If I can, I might try to record it myself too, but Sue might want to record something else at the same time and guess who wins!!!
