A dream is a wish your heart makes


The year 2020 marks 70 years since the release of the original Walt Disney film ‘Cinderella’, and 5 years since the release of its newest version, starring Lily James. One of the enduring songs from these films is A dream is a wish your heart makes, which is sung by Cinderella to encourage her animal friends always to dream of a better life. The melody is taken from Franz Liszt’s Etude No 9, 'Ricordanza', but the sparkling, colourful harmony of the Disney song—alongside its optimistic lyrics—made it an attractive prospect to adapt for our forces and record.
