Errollyn Wallen pays homage to Bach and Corelli in 'Concerto Grosso' with its combination of dance elements and the buoyant rhythms of Baroque and popular music. James Wilson's evocative 'The Green Fuse' is inspired by Dylan Thomas's poem 'The Force That Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower' and Julian Joseph's energetic 'Carry That Sound' combines elements of jazz and blues harmonies. Daniel Kidane's 'Dream Song' was written for the reopening of Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall in 2018 and sets words from Martin Luther King's powerful 'I Have a Dream' speech, sung by soloist Roderick Williams. Hannah Kendall's 'The Spark Catchers' draws on the dynamic poem by Lemn Sissay, commissioned for London's 2012 Olympics. Philip Herbert's poignant 'Elegy' is a tribute to Stephen Lawrence who was murdered in a racist attack in London in 1999.
