The Commonwealth Resounds was extremely glad to be able to help support the musical programme for Commonwealth Day 2019 in Westminster Abbey.
Thanks to the amazing efforts of Marie Price and the Abbey CE VA Primary School in St Albans, we were able to assemble a choir of children from more than 23 different cultural backgrounds! This was called ‘Hertfordshire’s Commonwealth Choir!’
The young people were accompanied by members of the Dionysus Ensemble (TCR’s Ensemble-in Residence).
Songs were specially arranged for the group by young Commonwealth composers Peadar Hay, Jasmine Morris, James Sparkes and Joshua Mock. The songs reflected the Commonwealth and its values.
Many thanks to the Royal Commonwealth Society for organising such a lovely event and for looking after us all so beautifully.
