Here are some clips of the first performance (RAH) of the song cycle I wrote with Kate Stilitz, commissioned by Haringey Music Service http://www.onesmallbird.uk/media/
A video collage of Sarah Reid’s pastel drawings, Geoff Bartholomew trumpet and Jilly Jarman sounds and video.
Really need to get my compositions more easily available and accessible – I keep getting asked by people if they can use them, which is BRILLIANT!
So going to try to put aside some time to do it (ha ha!)
Anyway – most recently, the amazing classical singer Sarah Wallcook performed Bubbles and Burdens at a concert dinner in Sweden, BJYJE (BlueJam Youth Jazz Ensemble) is going to perform a Fascinating Days/Mountains merge and KSGS will feature Muevete at their festival!
I have been writing a carol every year for the school my children went to since about 2003. I think this is the year we should get them all into a book!
Intonent Hodie | Welcome | Toca La Campanas
Now At Evening | Make Me A Lantern | Walking | Join In
Celebrate | Don’t Look Now!
Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas! | Promise | Spirit of Christmas
The Boy | Xmas Is Coming | The Snowman
My Bairn Sleep Softly Now | Whisper of the Wind | Carol of the Birds
Celebrate New Life | Imagine Now
Putting the finishing touches to this year’s carol for North Lakes School, where my children went and we now all work in one capacity or another. I write a carol for them every year and this will be about the 16th offering. Most of them can be found on vocalunion.org.uk and are free to use for non-profit occasions. Glad to see Mary Keith is using “Welcome” with her choir this year.
I was commissioned by the Eskdalemuir Expressive Arts group to set a series of verses written by the Writing Group to music. We then performed the song together at the evening event.
It will be recorded before Christmas.
