Working With Voices
Creating original choral works is hugely rewarding. What I find so fulfilling is collaborating with a room of individuals who soon become a choir, both inspiring the room and then the audience.
NEW RIVER CANTATA
Part-funded by Arts Council England, this capsule community choir project celebrates the 400th anniversary of London's New River. Sung by people local to the North London section of the New River. Recorded at Angel Studios, London on September 21st, 2013.
WONDERFUL SOUND ORATORIO
An ensemble of over 300 volunteer performers from across the UK learned the work through a series of workshops, recorded resources and rehearsals. We performed it at The Royal Albert Hall, London on May 7th, 2005 at the SGI-UK General Meeting.
WHEN I MOVE THE WORLD MOVES TOO
Artforms, part of Education Leeds, commissioned me to create a legacy work with Leeds Youth Choir, Yorkshire Youth Choir, Leeds Percussion Ensemble and students from Benton Park Comprehensive School for iMove, Yorkshire's Cultural Olympiad program. The result, a cantata with percussion received an Inspire Mark Award for the Cultural Olympiad 2012.
