The Basilica Remembers A Maestro shortlisted for NCEM Young Composers Award 2018

Sarah wrote The Basilica Remembers A Maestro for sackbuts and cornetts as an entry for the National Centre for Early Music Young Composers Award 2018 and is delighted that it has been shortlisted. The brief was to write a piece for the English Cornett and Sackbut Ensemble, taking inspiration from Venice; Sarah’s piece is influenced by Venetian polychoral style, Renaissance ornamentation and Monteverdi’s use of dance rhythms. The shortlisted works will be presented in a workshop led by composer Christopher Fox in York on 10th May, before a public concert that evening in front of the judges.
