The Full Score for I Know The Music, composed by Patrick Hawes, former composer in residence for Classic FM. This work is arranged for Soprano Soloist, SATB Chorus and Strings.
Commissioned by Aliquando Choir for the town of Henley-on-Thames and the wider community, Patrick Hawes composed this for the memory of those who served their country in times of war. I Know The Music was premiered on the 8th of November 2014 in St Mary's Church in Henley-on-Thames by Aliquando Choir, the Soprano Meryl Davies, West Forest Sinfonia, all conducted by the composer himself, Patrick Hawes. The piece is a setting of a Wilfred Owen poem of the same name, which describes the sounds of the battlefield as musical, a lament for the loss of beauty in a time of unimaginable tragedy.
