New Commission: Joanna Ward

We are terrifically excited to share a photo of our first commission as a group, ‘Christus factus est’ from British composer Joanna Ward.

Joanna Ward received first prize in the under-18 category of our 2016 Composition Competition, and when the opportunity for a new setting of this text arose we really wanted to see what her response would be. 

We’ve tried a few bars over Zoom and it’s going to be one of our new favourites, and hopefully yours too.

The premiere was scheduled for our performance at the Aldeburgh Festival on 26 June 2020, which has unfortunately been cancelled. However, we look forward to revealing a new date to showcase Joanna’s latest work soon.
