The Kindness of Strangers

Brian Bilston, the unofficial poet laureate of Twitter, has very kindly allowed me to set his poem “The Kindness of Strangers” to music. It’s written in memory of the bombings in London and Manchester (and set to music also with the tragedy at Grenfell in mind). It’s about 3 minutes long, for SATB (maximum divisi to SSAATBB, ideal if you’re a bit short on tenors), easy to medium difficulty.

For the first choir to email me and say they’re willing to record a demo of this in 2017 (please include a link to a previous recording of your choir) I’ll give you a set of scores for free. After that the price will be £2 per copy, or £30 for a PDF (ideal for bigger choirs as that will let you print as many copies as you need).
