As composer and founder-patron of The London Festival of Contemporary Church Music, I have keenly watched it grow from its beginnings more than a decade ago. The Festival quickly became an established and much valued event in London’s musical calendar, bringing proper attention to the vital place of new music in the church’s repertoire. Indeed, it would now be hard to envisage the month of May without the enjoyment of this exciting enterprise.
Sebastian Forbes, composer Patron
