The Land Where I was Born

for SSATBB choir, soprano solo, and piano

Inspired by the imagery of my home Island of Guernsey in the Channel Islands, this is an evocative piece which celebrates the sea, using driving rhythms, a soaring high soprano solo, and an iconic ‘fog-horn’ motif. After it’s premiere by the Guernsey Glee Singers in 2007, this piece has been routinely performed by various choirs across the Channel Islands. It also received it’s international premiere at the Praga Cantat Festival in Prague, 2007.
