Writing They are All Gone..

New Work for Magdi

I have set a piece for choir based on the Henry Vaughan poem, They Are All Gone Into The World Of Light.  The piece came to me after attending the beautiful funeral of Marianne Yacoub.  Madgi has been such a support over the last 20 years, it is a privilege to set this for him and the family.

Lisa Yacoub helps to run the charity Chain of Hope.  In the last years of his life, my brother was pleased to be able to assist their work, bringing medical expertise to help children in Egypt and elsewhere.
