In Giving Voice to My Music, David Wordsworth's engrossing interviews take us into the world of twenty-four leading composers of choral music, composers for whom writing for choirs is central to their very existence.

Here, they give voice to their inspirations, their passions and the challenges they have faced in working through the pandemic of 2020/21. They reveal how their life experiences have influenced their compositions, how they choose and relate to the texts they set, and how they interact with commissioners, singers and conductors alike.

Enhanced by an extensive reference section and a revelatory list of the composers' own favourite pieces, readers will discover music that has enriched these composers' lives and encouraged their creativity.

Giving Voice to my Music will be relished by singers, composers, conductors and above all audiences, for the new insights it offers into works that are already well-known but also for its introductions to new choral music that deserves to be better known.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Not often does a professional book engage the reader while providing valuable insights to the music of a composer in their own words. Giving Voice to My Music is both of those, and well worth the time of conductors who share this music with our audiences.' - Gregort M. Pysh, Choral Journal. 'Giving Voice to my Music should be on the shelves of every choral conductor and anyone who is interested in contemporary choral music, so if you want to know more, do buy it. You won't regret it.' - Clare Stevens, Choir & Organ. 'Such an interesting book revealing the thoughts of each composer. It was a privilege to be asked to write the Foreword.' - David Hill, The Bach Choir; 'So very impressive in all ways and a major contribution to the choral world.' - Morten Lauridsen, Composer; 'This is a fascinating set of interviews with well-known choral composers. David Wordsworth extracts great insights from all the participants.' - Will Todd, Composer
