I feel both humbled and honoured to have been approached to give my name to the International Choral Festival Wales Trophy. Over ninety nine percent of my compositional output has involved singers and singing and the sound of the human voice has been an inspiration to me over many years, whether by the conventional use of the voice as a vehicle for expressing a narrative or by using it purely as an instrument, as in my Adiemus project. Curiously enough, I rarely if ever sang, spending my time playing the oboe in the orchestra. Last week on the radio, I heard I was the answer in a quiz! This even trumps that.
