Magical Kingdom

First line:
Everyone has their own magical kingdom
author of text

The sense of wonder and enchantment experienced by children at Christmas time provided the inspiration for this song, which was written in 2003 for the noted London choir Children’s Voices, whose director June Keyte has encouraged numerous composers including Sir Peter Maxwell Davies to write for her choir.
