Choral music: The voice of the soul

On a recent trip to the USA composer Patrick Hawes did a series of interviews with the sheet music retailer JW Pepper for their series, The Inside Voice.

The seven interviews cover Patrick’s love of choral music, the process of composition, his musical hero, his early years and where he sees music is going in the 21st century.  

He also discusses The Great War Symphony (the sheet music for which Making Music members can receive additional discounts – see below).

You can watch the whole interview series here and read more about the interviews on the JW Pepper’s blog, Cued In.
