Time to blow someone else's trumpet - or in this case guitar and choral music compositions.
How to spend a lull in preparations for a speaking event and the actual event today?
Fast forward to Sound Cloud and the music of James Thompson1 who lives and works in Manchester following his graduation from the University of Manchester in the summer of 2015 with a MusB(Hons).
James has put his heart and soul into his first two compositions for a while. The range and depth of music and voice truly touches your heartstrings.

For Christmas he wrote a new choral arrangement to an old carol - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen' for Luke Mather - Icosa (https://soundcloud.com/icosa21) which was played in London.

Truly a musician of many hats in the composing area of song and music.
