Let's Talk

Choral and ensemble

A new choral piece commissioned by the Grammar School at Leeds for choir, soloists and small ensemble.  This piece began with a group of students set up boards in a foyer space within school and invited any students passing to add their responses, anonymously, to the questions "What's on your mind?".  They then collated these and analysed them by theme, frequency etc.   This became the material for me to use to create lyrics with and it really led the compositional ideas too.
