The All Things Must Pass Orchestra was looking forward to celebrating the classic track’s 50th anniversary this year. However, their performances were completely removed from the calendar when the coronavirus pandemic hit. However, while in isolation, the musicians have come together virtually to still celebrate George Harrison’s “All Things Must Pass.” And it’s the perfect time for such a song.
Each musician took on the song from the comfort of their own homes, recording their piece. It all finally came together to make a beautiful celebration of the classic tune, which resonates a lot more with people these days.
“All Things Must Pass” is the new lockdown anthem that everyone can relate to
The classic song includes the following verses that fans may recognize:
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It’s not always going to be this grey
All things must pass away“
The impact of Harrison’s song on the orchestra of the same name
Seaford-based singer and guitarist Alex Eberhard talks about the song and its impact. “It is a song which works at some many different levels if you are spiritually inclined or if you have studied the Indian philosophies like George Harrison did,” he says. “It is saying that everything material will pass, but who we are is not something that is material.”
