Songbook Launches!

When we collide map logo image

After nearly a year of new cities, missed trains, home-made cakes, getting caught in the rain and (most of all!) singing, the British Songbook is finally complete!

Interviews with over 600 people from across the country have come together to form 14 songs that describe who we, the people of Britain, are in 2018. 

The music is now available for you to download for free on this website – we’ve got lyric sheets, scores, learning resources and helpful notes.

The world premiere of When We Collide: A British Songbook is at OpenFest:Art50 at Barbican, London on Saturday 23rd February 2019 with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, and Sage Gatehead on Sunday 24th February 2019. We have a further performance at Snape Maltings on Saturday 23rd March 2019. We are looking for singers (of all abilities) to join us for these exciting performances.

We already have hundreds of singers signed up but we need more! If you or your choir want more details about the performances or info on how to get involved, send us your details here and we’ll get in touch.

Alternatively, just turn up and have a listen!
