The natural world can inspire us all and each of the
composers in this programme has responded by
creating some of their most beautiful music, celebrating
and reflecting the spectacular beauty and glorious
diversity of their homeland. The centrepiece of the
concert is a special commission from John Woolrich,
directly inspired by the wild and magnificent landscapes
of the Great Fen Project.

One of Britain's most exciting conservation efforts, the
Great Fen Project is creating a 9,000 acre fenland
habitat in Cambridgeshire. It will create a haven for
wildlife and open new opportunities for business,
education and recreation.
