ECS perform world premier

At their Summer concert on July 6th at St Alfege Church, Greenwich, ECS performed a new work by composer Esther Berswerden which was specially commissioned by the choir for the event. It was accompanied by the Nelson Mass fitting its theme Time and Tides: An Exploration of Greenwich.
The work was very well received, attracting many plaudits such as this:
The Esther Bersweden premiere was very inspiring and showcased the choir brilliantly - well worth the effort you all put into it. The Haydn was both exciting and lyrical
You can read Esther's notes on the work 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.

A second chance to hear it at our Easter Concert, 5th April. Details in our events page
