World in Union

Today marks the start of the 7th Rugby World Cup and over the next few weeks there will, I'm sure, be a number of Rugby related posts... I'm going to kick things of with some music. Specifically Dame Kiri Te Kanawa's version of the Rugby World Cup anthem "World In Union" from 1991:

This year's version has been recorded by Hayley Westenra and you can hear it here. To my ears though, it lacks the richness of her compatriot's version which I've loved for 20 years(!) now. I even had it on cassette single...

Of course nothing can displace KTK's classic original, but have to say I thought this new version was pretty good all the same.
