Springsong – The National Trust at 125

Springsong - The National Trust at 125

I am delighted to have been commissioned by the National Trust to compose the 2020 anthem for Springsong, an event celebrating the charity’s 125th anniversary.

The piece will be performed by twenty-two pop-up choirs, as a Singing Beacon, on May 16th 2020. The first choir will start at Alfriston Clergy House, which is the first property to have come under the National Trust’s care in 1896. From there, the Singing Beacon will pass from property to property, with each choir handing over the choral baton to the next choir! The anthem is called ‘For Everyone For ever’ and features lyrics contributed by the Trust’s staff and supporters. It finishes at Waddesdon Manor.

I will be conducting a Springsong choir at Nymans in West Sussex. If you would like to participate at Nymans please click here.
