And every stone shall cry

composer
author of text

 
In 2003 I was contacted out of the blue by Amelia Fawcett, an American lady living and working in London who had heard a piece of mine in St Paul’s Cathedral, and wondered if I might consider writing a work as a Christmas present for her parents. The idea was to write and record it in London, and then Amelia would fly her parents over from Boston as a surprise to hear it sung. The resulting piece was written to the poem And every stone shall cry by American poet Richard Wilbur. Robert Johnston, a tenor in the BBC Singers organised a group of singers to record the piece in the Temple Church in London, and the recording was produced by Adrian Peacock, a bass in the Singers. Towards the end of the recording Amelia brought her unsuspecting parents into the church, and we sang the piece for them.
