Running (6:08)

Cover of Symphony

From Symphony and 4 other releases

“Running” was a single released by Soprano Sarah Brightman on August 28, 2007 (See 2007 in music). The album version of “Running” can also be found on Symphony, with slightly different instrumentation.

“Running” was the IAAF’s Green Project Charity song, which Brightman performed in 2007 at their Championships opening ceremonies in Osaka, Japan.

“Running” features an excerpt of “Jupiter”, from Gustav Holst’s The Planets. The piece is commonly known as “I Vow to Thee, My Country”, however “Running” is set to different lyrics that she wrote with the help of one of her friends.

    @KaoruTakarai88: As tech_lover said, this is a classical piece by Gustav Holst called "Jupiter". It is from his Planets suite, and is actually a very popular classical song (along with Holst's "Mars", also from The Planets).

    @KaoruTakarai88: Well after researching about it, I found that it is actually more complex than that. The very original music piece is called "Jupiter" from "Gustav Holst"'s orchestral suite "The Planets". He adapted it a bit and called it "Thaxted" to be accompanying an old British patriotic song called "I Vow to Thee, My Country". Each of Sarah and Ayaka is singing her own lyrics to it.
