Help me identify this piece for voice choir - about refugees

I know it's about refugees, and I think the person who wrote it may have been eastern european, and it's for a voice choir.

It sounds like 12/8, it's a soaring tune, if you see what I mean, and it's very haunting. In a major key.

what kind of choir?
not from A Day In A Life, is it?

CissyCharlton · 27/08/2007 15:49

Is it Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves by Verdi?

I am so pleased to have helped you; your clues weren't crappy at all.

I do wonder though, how I can pluck information like this out of my head when very often I can't even remember the names of my own Dc!
