Black Sabbath’s legendary guitarist Tony Iommi composed a special choral song for Birmingham Cathedral. Catherine Ogle, the nunnery of the cathedral, wrote the words of Tony Iommi’s piece.

The vocals of the song were made by members of the cathedral choir. The song has a 5 minute acoustic background. 

Ogle said:

Tony and I were introduced by a mutual friend and we discussed a possible music collaboration sometime in the future.

Then, when Tony was unwell, we got to know one another better when I began to pray for him and kept in touch with Tony and his wife about his health. This is a most wonderful gift Tony offered to the cathedral.

Tony Iommi said the track was “just a little bit different to Sabbath”. You can listen from below.
