Michael Price
It was recorded in Sandham Memorial Chapel...

Renowned composer Michael Price has shared beautiful new piece 'Sandham'.

The composer's new album 'Tender Symmetry' arrives on August 31st, featuring seven pieces recorded at National Trust sites across the country.

Utilising some historic spaces, Michael Price turned them into ad hoc recording studios, something that adds an extra layer of atmosphere to the recordings.

'Sandham' is online now, a graceful return recorded in a historic church. He explains...

"Sandham Memorial Chapel, built in the 1920s, is both a place of reflection and healing, but also a timely reminder, though the extraordinary paintings of Stanley Spencer, of the horrors of war."

"Stepping out of the fragrant wild-flower garden and into the cool, naturally-lit interior of the chapel was a transportation to a time early in the last century where young men and women were either inflicting terrible injuries on each other, or tenderly caring for those wounds. A place that is both uniquely of the First World War, and utterly contemporary."

A moving, engrossing piece, you can listen to 'Sandham' below.
