Black Sabbath legend Tony Iommi writes song for Birmingham Cathedral

The Birmingham rock legend widely credited with inventing heavy metal music has written a moving acoustic arrangement for Birmingham Cathedral after he wanted to 'give something back' to his home city.

Black Sabbath lead guitarist Tony Iommi worked with his friend the Dean of Birmingham Cathedral, the Very Reverend Catherine Ogle, on the five-minute arrangement which celebrates peace, harmony and the Cathedral's role in the heart of the city.

Called 'How Good It Is' the song features the Black Sabbath star on acoustic guitar with lyrics inspired by Psalm 133 performed by men and boys from the Cathedral Choir.

How Good It Is is available on iTunes and can be found by visiting www.birminghamCathedral.com/news
