School chaplain's song for dementia charity is a real winner
PUBLISHED: 11:00 08 December 2018
A Harpenden school chaplain’s song is to be released as a charity single.
Revd Steve Warner, who works at St George’s School, wrote ‘Checking Out’, telling the story of a husband living with a wife who has dementia.
St Albans music promoter Denise Parsons said she was “moved to tears” by the piece.
She approached Steve and Roly from the local group Warner Taylor Folk to record the track so it could be released as a charity single. They were joined by Roly’s daughter Clara on the cello and the song was produced by Lauren Deakin Davies.
With the help of local record label 3M and cinematographer Richard Allen, the single has been released with an accompanying video shoot in the school’s chapel.
Revd Warner said that he was delighted that his song has achieved this recognition and is being used to promote such a worthy cause.
He added: “Although I am enjoying my new found ‘fame’, I am sure there won’t be a vacancy for chaplain just yet!”
