It is now impossible to imagine a world without Imagine – an enduring hymn of solace and promise that has carried us through extreme grief and continues to provide hope all around the world up to this day.
The immortal song was the best selling single of the solo career of John Lennon– the co-founder of the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music, the Beatles; a legend, who hardly needs any introduction. Since its release in 1971 the song has sold more than 1.6 million copies – just in the UK – and has been recorded and performed by dozens of artists, including Madonna, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Diana Ross.
As part of the Pop Choral Series, John Lennon’s signature song has been arranged for SATB a cappella choir by Roger Emerson. Named one of the 100 most-performed songs of the 20th century, and played just before the New Year's Times Square Ball drops in New York City since 2005, Lennon’s plea for world peace remains relevant and timeless – a guaranteed audience favourite.
