Thrilling to hear that composer Anna Appleby & poet Merrie Williams have won the Rosamund Prize for composition with their piece Four Sunflowers. Also for John Uren & Mark Pajak who were highly commended for Thin. Joanna sang both compositions at the concert on 15 May.
A CD of music by Herbert Howells which I recorded with the Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge, in Summer 2011 has won a Gramophone Award. Apparently it is the first time a Cambridge chapel choir has won this award. Unfortunately, I missed out on the celebratory drinks reception because I was singing Bach in Suffolk…!
