In 2022 James and Emmeline Winterbotham commissioned local composer Nathan Williamson to set to music six of the poems.  This song cycle, titled “Grey and Green are all my Light”, was premiered at Reydon Hall on 15th April, 2023 by baritone Jonathan Eyers with Nathan Williamson at the piano.

The concert also included songs by Butterworth and Vaughan Williams, who had visited Southwold in 1910 to collect folksongs, and by Martin Shaw, a 20th Century English composer who lived in Southwold.

 

Nathan Williamson is the driving force behind The Art of British Song, a project celebrating and showcasing British songwriting, its legacy and its future.  TABS aims to bring British song out of the shadows.
