Westminster Cathedral Songwriting

Musicals on the themes of Moses and St Paul

I’ve really enjoyed working with Y3 and 4 classes to write songs for Moses: A Musical and Saul to Paul: Sinner to Saint – new musicals written by catholic schoolchildren around London. I was part of a team working for Westminster Cathedral as past of their education and access programme.

I worked with schools in Hammersmith, Haringey and Perivale, leading the children through the process of writing lyrics and melodies, creating 6 new songs.

At the end of the year, all participating schools came together to pack out Westminster Cathedral and perform their new musical all the way through for the first time.

What Can I do to Help Them? – inspired by Moses’ teenage years
