Today I've been working on a project commissioned by St Nicholas Church in Pevensey. I'm writing a work for children's choir to be performed next year, when the church celebrates its 800th anniversary. I'm collaborating with Starshine publisher and writer Ruth Kenward. This is a new process for me. We are meeting regularly to exchange ideas and then working separately, emailing suggestions and amendments back and forth! It's certainly good to have someone to bounce ideas at, but at times one has to accept that a passage of music you initially think is great just won't work. A humbling but thought-provoking and valuable process.
