I downloaded the music and the mp3 learning track, and posted them for your use below, and I copied the part of the Sing Canada newsletter that tells us that this song is being offered as a gift, to all barbershoppers across Canada.
Listen to and enjoy the song using the audio player below, and download and print out the music if you wish, by clicking on the "Download File" to the right, and maybe we could consider learning it.
Downloadable Mother's Day Song - chart and MP3 recording
Canadian men and women Barbershoppers have received a gift from composer, Stephen Rafe, and arranger Bart Van de Mark. The composer, and the arranger have waived all fees related to their song, "My Mom."
Stephen Rafe is a colleague and friend of JR Digger MacDougall, founder of Sing Canada Harmony. Dr. Rafe was the 1st chair appointed to head the International Leadership Task Force of the SPEBSQSA (Now Barbershop Harmony Society), on which Digger served as vice chair for 7 years.
Dr. Rafe and Bart Mark wrote and arranged the song, "My Mom." with the intention of allowing Barbershoppers to perform the song on or before Mother's Day, along the lines of Singing Valentines.
Just as Barbershoppers from all over Canada, share the proceeds of their Singing Valentines performances, Sing Canada Harmony recommends that quartets and choruses performing “My Mom”, consider a tribute donation to Sing Canada Harmony. Please donate at www.SingCanadaHarmony.ca/donate to honour and thank Stephen and Bart for their generosity in sharing this moving song.
Sing Canada Harmony extends gracious thanks to Dr. Stephen Rafe and Bart Van de Mark for their gift to Barbershoppers.
