Echoes from Northamptonshire

May 10


“Echoes from Northamptonshire”



electric voice theatre have been promoting the work of women composers past and present who live(d)or work(ed) in the UK through our Minerva Scientifica Project since 2013

Today we can announce our latest commission from

Cheryl Frances-Hoad

for her first electronic work for 2 of our singers which
will premiere at Chelmsford Civic Theatre
on September 20th
as part of the Essex 2020 initiative  – Live or Virtual!


Please visit our Women Composers Page on the Minerva Scientifica Website where you will find a range of work by composers from all ages whose work has featured in our projects up and down the UK. More will be added this week as they join our projects.

For now here is a taste of Shena Fraser‘s beautiful Sea Lullaby sung by BBC Singer Margaret Cameron with Frances M Lynch on piano. It is a setting of a poem by Eugene Field (with slight word changes to illustrate the story of a Marine Biologist Nora Miller, who like the composer was from Stirling), and was written c. 1973. Our first performance in this slightly altered version took place at The Engine Shed, Stirling, on September 18th 2018 for Historic Environment Scotland


Over at BRIXWORTH ONLINE MUSIC FESTIVAL they are celebrating the winners of their Competition for Women Composers including this year’s winner. The competition’s most illustrious judge is Judith Weir – Master of the Queen’s Music and Patron of Minerva Scientifica
