Premiering at the Beach of Dreams Festival, Lowestoft '21

Britten Pears Arts, Group A: for Vocal Group and Band

Written for Group A, a group of young singers, to perform at the 'Beach of Dreams Festival' in Lowestoft in July '21 together with jazz quartet Ping Machine.

The piece told the story of 2 young people from Lowestoft - a schoolchild in 2021, post lockdown and wondering if life will ever be the same again,  and the other as ship's boy on board the Tantivy having just survived a terrible storm after setting sail from Lowestoft harbour in 1889. Both describe the experiences which are unimaginable to the other and to themselves only months before.
