Art song with lyrics by Arnold Wesker.

Snippet from the scoreMusicians: Fiona Brice, Alice Butcher, Rebecca Trodd, Megan Stewart. 

Written as an entry to the Eurovision Song Contest, it crashed and burned! Jonathan King contacted Arnold to say the song sounded too classical for Eurovision and it didn't even make the final 40. 
It did, however, receive a large amount of attention from a record label and very nearly led to a publishing deal!
