On Windover Hill

"DEEPLY MOVING AND ENTHRALLING"

"ROOTED IN FREEDOM, SPACE, AND THE LAND"

It was profoundly moving experience to hear On Windover Hill premiered by such incredible musical forces as the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra and Harlequin Chamber Choir. After almost 4 years of writing and research, to share the Long Man's voice in the beautiful surroundings of the 12th Century Priory Church at Boxgrove was magical. The multi-faceted nature of the concert, which included elements of contemporary dance within some of the movements, the visual arts from the exhibiting local artists, and the readings of poetry and prose, enhanced the music and allowed us to immerse ourselves in the beauty of the Sussex Downs.
