On Armistice weekend 2018, 100 years since the end of WW1 I organised for our (Marcel and I’s) compositions to be played live by a string quartet in a WW1 defence tunnel at Spurn Point on the East Yorkshire Coast as part of my residency. Musicians were Rebecca Draper (viola), Rebecca Stone (cello), David Constantine (violin) and Adhel Cadle (violin) conductor and arranger Russell Plows.
