Started by Gavin Sutherland and Emma Sheppard to champion undiscovered, new, and neglected British works for Viola.


The project is pleased to announce forthcoming concerts, new repertoire, and further plans for 2019 - please check back for updates!

Chosen Hill, Churchdown, Gloucestershire.

A sacred, much beloved place. 

With views of the Malverns and the Cotswolds, a source of inspiration for: 

Gerald Finzi (In Terra Pax, Nocturne), who took Ralph Vaughan Williams up the hill in 1956;

Herbert Howells (Piano Quartet in Am - The Chosen Tune); and

Ivor Gurney, who used to walk up it nearly every evening. 

Place of my school cross country runs, sledging trips, and family walks.
