Premiere of Goodnight Soldiers – 10th November 2018

Goodnight Soldiers is the result of a collaboration with poet Moyra Tourlamain, who wrote the words for Sarah to set to music especially for the armistice commemorations in Great Chesterford. The piece calls for children’s choir, trumpet and piano and moves from a march to a lullaby. The choir of Great Chesterford Primary Academy, led by Kathryn Middleton, with Sarah at the piano and Tristan Harkcom on the trumpet, gave the first performance in a packed village church on 10th November. The concert also featured the Wimbish Military Wives Choir, a pop-up community choir run by Sarah, and readings from the canon of war poetry.
