Thank you, Guildford!

Sunday was my first visit to Guildford Cathedral and I was delighted to arrive in time to hear the choristers doing a quick run-through of my piece before Evensong. ‘Come unto me’, which I was commissioned to write by Choir & Organ Magazine, was given a stunning first performance by the men and boys of the cathedral choir during the Evensong service.

I would like to pass on my heartfelt thanks to all of them for putting so much into it, and particularly to their director Katherine Dienes-Williams. I also want to thank Shirley and Maggie of Choir & Organ for the wonderful opportunity, for making the arrangements and for coming along to witness the premiere.
