Seasonal Cycle

 

 

These 6 songs were created so that there's always something to sing to suit the time of year. It's also possible to sing them all on the same occasion, so that each song gets an airing and doesn't have to wait for months to be sung. The whole cycle was performed twice in 2019, thanks to Malcolm Atkins and a host of singers, players and dancers from Littlemore in Oxford and beyond, and also taught in a workshop with Towersey Village Voices and others in January 2020. Climate change means the seasons aren't when they were, but those changes still have meaning and need to be noticed and celebrated.

Spring Fanfare

Influenced by old-style West Gallery hymns  which suit the exuberance of springtime. Tricky and fun to sing.

I didn't see bluebell woods till I was nearly 30. Still find them amazing.
