    Song for the Frontline - John Barber

    Song for the Frontline was composed in April 2020 during the UK’s lockdown imposed to limit the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. Amongst many other consequences, the lockdown brought about the end of ensemble rehearsals and as such, Song for the Frontline was released as the third of Foden’s ‘Stay at Home Banding’ performances. Written to help raise funds for the NHS and other frontline services, the music was recorded by band members individually at home with the ‘premiere’ given on Thursday 16th April 2020 alongside a video featuring colleagues working with the Police, Fire services, the NHS and within other frontline roles. The music is a reflective ballad with a catchy motif that unifies the verse, whilst the chorus builds to highlight the emotional context of the time in which it was written. The piece is composed to be accessible both to the listener and performer hopefully allowing all the opportunity to take part and enjoy the music.Also available to purchase in print from(external webpage, opens in new window)
