Equine charity’s version of Nessun Dorma

Equine charity’s version of Nessun Dorma

A pastiche of Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’ aria from a ‘Mr Mands’ and Yellow Arch Studios to raise funds for Equine Market Watch Sanctuaries UK.

Fine voice, amusing images, and some pretty poor scansion in the lyrics, but all in all a fun approach.

Although it wasn’t published by the charity, it wouldn’t do any harm to include the registered charity number on the video since it is a fundraising appeal. Indeed, do any charities publish guidelines about how their supporters can and should use their names on YouTube and other social media sites?
