And off we go

Monday saw the re-starting of rehearsals for London Concord Singers working towards the next concert on Saturday March 15th at Hampstead Town Hall. The programme will include John Gardner's Five Partsongs to Poems by Wallace Stevens, Philip Cranmer's Three Parodies on "Lloyd George knew my Father" and my new setting of Do not go gentle into that good night for choir and French Horn. The programme also includes part-songs by Elgar and Song of Sorrows by Mary Jane Leach.

My piece is a world première, the 3rd such this year. As usual, the first run-through is always a little nerve-wracking but the piece seemed to go down well with the choir.
