London Town Published

London Town was commissioned and written to be performed by the combined forces of unison children’s choir and SATB mixed voices, with piano. The vividly communicative six-movement work, which is accompanied throughout, is full of musical contrasts from the jaunty ‘London Zoo’ to the solemn ‘Lines written in the Tower of London’. The work celebrates London through its six songs and contains texts by Rudyard Kipling, Walter Raleigh, and William Wordsworth alongside new material by Delphine Chalmers and the composer. It has sections for adult voices alone and sections for children’s voices alone alongside passages for the two forces to combine as a full choir.
