Celtic Anthem ‘Let Us Sing’ by Jenny and James with Julie and the Roundabout Singers Highlights Rugby’s Ethos

Philip Myburgh’s brainchild “The Dance of the Footnote” is a celebration of the enduring ethos of Rugby. The lead single, “Let Us Sing,” is an uplifting homage to a sport that captivates hearts around the world. The single was Recorded, arranged and produced by Jonny Blundell of Rootspring Studio with Choir arrangement by Julie Blundell.

Emerging lyricist Philip Myburgh, in collaboration with a group of talented artists, releases “Let Us Sing” from his highly anticipated album, “The Dance of the Footnote.” Following the release of the first two tracks, “Sinani” and “Mama wam” – the collection features 20 carefully crafted songs, with “Let Us Sing” promising to resonate with a global audience through its universal message and vibrant energy.

“Let Us Sing,” performed by Jenny and James with Julie and the Roundabout Singers, embodies the spirit of unity and respect that rugby instills. The song draws inspiration from the camaraderie seen on the rugby field, where fierce competition gives way to mutual respect and friendship after the game.

Philip Myburgh shares his motivation behind the song: “What I love about rugby is its ethos—the idea that two teams can go full tilt at each other for 80 minutes and then, after the game, shake hands, embrace, sometimes pray together and perhaps share a drink. This song is a call to sing together and remember the wonderful ethos of the game.”

Let Us Sing is out now on all platforms.

“We carry dreams, both big and small, to do better to prevail, for the other to fall. And we shout and we sing, let our voices ring, fly our flags, urge our teams to win. For while we share this most ancient yearning, it’s not for victory alone we keep returning. (Chorus) So let us sing together, let us sing as one, for time is fleeting and then it’s gone. Let us not betray what will outlast today for the dust will settle come what may. When it is over we shake hands, till we will meet again let us sing together let us sing.”
