HEROES OF THE HELEN BLAKE

A five movement seascape for large orchestra and men’s choir, rich with beautiful melody and lush in orchestral colour. Dedicated to Lifeboat men and women through the ages, a magnificent work evoking the spirit of faith, fear and bravery of the souls who wander the seas.
