Notes & Reviews:

Cheryl Francis-Hoad's vocal and choral work explores her fascination with narratives. One Life Stand takes Schumann's Frauenliebe und Leben as inspiration, but updates it with 8 poems by crime-writer and poet Sophie Hannah. Don't! (2009) might be regarded as a little appendix to One Life Stand. Psalm No. 1 for SATB choir and organ won a 2010 BASCA award. Nunc Dimittis is scored for 21 solo voices, whereas 'You promised me everything last night', for soprano, cello and piano duet, sets just those six words that make up the title. "... a voice overflowing with ideas... discipline and artistry." - The Scotsman
