It looks like no-one is going to have a crack at this one.

The answer is a song called "The Holy City" sometimes called "Jerusalem"

I'll try another one.

Shelagh

I believe that's a fab song performed by many (e.g. Carole King, Dusty Springfield, Nils Lofgren) - I think my favourite is the version by Phil Collins but that's just me.

So right Bernie..fabulous song, beautiful lyrics..Dusty version is excellent, but agree ..Phil Collins has the voice to pull off many a decent song :wink:
Has a great cover of Cyndi Lauper song - True Colours :D

Agreed Shelagh - he's done some belters over the years.

But that's just the kind of thing she ought to know
