Ghislaine Reece-Trapp

A carol newly composed by Ghislaine Reece-Trapp, former Organ Scholar at Christ Church, has been shortlisted in this year’s Radio 3 Christmas Carol Competition. Radio 3 challenged amateur composers to create music for a modern version of a medieval English poem: ‘Alleluia! A new work is come on hand’. They were looking for carols of up to four minutes long written for four voices. Ghislaine’s entry can be heard at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/4GqSnwVKhmb5DtNl7XFTBDF/radio-3-carol-competition-2016 (the 4th of 6th finalists).
