Sunday Song – Remembrance Sunday -

In Memory of those that lost their lives for us.

Sunday 14th of November is Remembrance Sunday in the UK and although I did mention this Special Day in my last post November 11th I want to feature it here today in respect of my heritage.
In Italy servicemen who died for the nation are remembered on 4 November, when the ceasefire that followed the Armistice of Villa Giusti in 1918 began. Since 1977, this day has not been a public holiday, now, many services are held on the first Sunday of November.

We Shall Remember Them - Remembrance Sunday

courtesy thefriendpeter Remembrance Sunday, a day to remember those who have died for the protection of our liberty and those who have died in and because of war.
The music used in this video is from Elgar's Enigma Variations.   I was unable to find any suitable Italian music or artists to feature here today so I hope you will forgive me for straying away from Italy for this post. Instead I have chosen to share with you this beautiful 2008 rendition from The Ten Tenors of ‘Here’s to The Heroes’. The Ten Tenors are an Australian musical ensemble, more information can be found out about them at the sites I have listed further down the page.
I hope you will join with me today to remember those that lost their lives for us in this weeks Sunday Song post.

Buono Domenica a Tutti


  1. I hope with all my heart that one day people will be able to live in peace, war sucks.

  2. We shouldn't forget and maybe - just maybe - it will prevent us from making the same mistakes again. I agree with Alessandra... Have a lovely Sunday, Love from London, Carole xo

  3. I try and always remember days like this..If it wasn't for the men/woman that gave their lives for us..Where would we be? God Bless them all..
    If only we would learn the true meaning of peace.
    The sad thing..human nature..

  4. Thank you for this post. For all of us, it is very important to remember.

  5. Lovely post LindyLou. So important that we remember all those men and women who have laid down their lives for us.
    Thank you for your e-mail, and I have followed the instructions to the letter, so hopefully it will work. Let me know!!!

  6. Thank you for stopping by today. I am sorry my song link wasn't working for you. :( It seems to work for me so I don't know what is up there.
    I will for sure be stopping by to visit this blog often. We went to Italy the first time this August. We did a cruise so we went to Florence, Rome and Naples...I loved it! I have decendents from Malta. I am in awe that you two moved away after becoming empty nesters...wow. My husband 'talk' about doing something like that but haven't so far!! I am your newest follower!

  7. This is a beautiful post. With my own son serving in Iraq, the dedication and sacrifice of military men and women has taken on an even deeper meaning. Thanks for posting this.

  8. Hope you had a buona domenica too!
    Have you noticed how we tend to forget very easily here?

  9. So sorry you stopped by again and it still didn't work for you. It must be blocked in
    Italy or something because you are the only one who said anything. :(
    THANK YOU for following me back!! I see you are a booklover too!!! I will check out your other blog. I used to work at our local library part time before becoming a 'granny' and watching my grandson twice a week. :)

    talk to you soon,

  10. This is indeed a lovely song and I have heard many of their songs but this one means so much more at this time of year.Thank you so very much for linking it up to Sunday Song. I am sure that your blog friends won't mind a slight deviation for one week! I look forward to hearing your Italian selection next week all the same!

    I hope your week is wonderful!

    Best wishes always,
