That mighty heart

composer

One of my favourite stories about inspiration and my father is when he was on a visit to post-war London in the 1940s and, restless at night, went for a walk around town. He found himself on Westminster Bridge, gazing at a cloud-bedecked moon shining down on the majestic Thames. The piece it inspired was his gorgeous Lullaby for harp and strings and he continued to love London—especially when it became his home, a decade or so later. For this reason, I have included my song That mighty heart (2008), which its poet Wordsworth subtitles ‘Composed upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802’. Its atmosphere of breathless awe and wonderment at the majestic beauty of the City and river, in the early hours of the morning, was clearly as stirring a sight to him as it was to my father. This song was commissioned by the NMC (along with 59 others by other composers) as part of celebration of British Song over the last 60 years.
