Song of the River, composed by Joy Byford, sung by Suffolk Great British Home Chorus friends

Submitted by: Joy B.

Original Song

I composed this during lockdown, based on a poem about a river by Charles Kingsley, that I first learnt in school many years ago. A group of friends from across Suffolk helped me to make a virtual recording, (all recorded in our homes) and they contributed pictures and videos of local rivers from around Suffolk, which I used in the accompanying video.

Making virtual choir recordings, and creating videos are new skills that I have taught myself during lockdown.
