Each year the Choir School Association runs the Sir David Willcocks Composition Competition. The competition is open to all chorister boys and girls aged 14 and under. Choristers can compose for solo voice or vocal ensemble, unaccompanied or accompanied by piano or organ.
The task this year was to set a short religious text, “Prepare our hearts to sing your praise…” as an Introit for a Church Service. James chose to set the text for two part choir of equal voices and organ.
This year’s competition was judged by Jonathan Willcocks, Sir David Willcocks’ son.
