Chorale Composition Competition Winners
Thank you to everyone who entered our Composition Competition. Judging has now been completed.
Throughout the process all scores have been assessed without the judges or choir members knowing the names, gender, age or nationality of any of the composers.
The judges assessed 175 works, looking for a celebratory piece or pieces that would be appropriate for our forthcoming 40th Anniversary Season.
The choir sang through a shortlist of pieces in mid-June and their feedback was considered by the panel shortly afterwards.
Following the judges’ final deliberations we are delighted to announce that three composers have been awarded prizes.
1st Jack White for When Voices Rise £1000
2nd Martin Neill with Sing for Joy! £300
3rd Lydia Jane Pugh for Your Words Give Light £200
