ECS commission a new work
for the summer concert

Our coming July 6th concert at St Alfege Church, Greenwich, features a new work by composer Esther Berswerden to accompany the Nelson Mass on its theme Time and Tides: An Exploration of Greenwich.
Esther has written short paragraphs about each movement’s Greenwich-related theme, and about how the whole work follows an overarching trajectory based on the theme of time. The document highlights the main motifs, including how they are used throughout the work. You can read it here.
Esther is a Bristol-based musician, currently working in the Music Department at Redmaids’ High School, and as a freelance composer. In 2021 she received a Distinction for her MA in Music specialising in Composition from the University of Bristol.
