    Story

    I am raising funds to record my settings of eight Urgyen Sangharakshita poems - entitled "Sangharakshita Songs" - with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the South African baritone Theo Magongoma, conducted by Ben Gernon. A recording has been scheduled to take place on Friday 9th February 2024. It will be released worldwide by SOMM CD. The disc will also include my "Carbon Symphony", recorded by the same orchestra and conductor in 2019 but as yet unreleased commercially; it can currently be heard on Youtube. The song cycle is also on Youtube in a piano version with baritone Graham Titus.

      RECORDING 9th FEBRUARY POSTPONED Thank you all for your kind donations and messages of encouragement. You have helped raise a substantial sum towards the cost of this project. Efforts seeking corporate sponsorship continues; I am confident that the enterprise will reach a satisfying conclusion in due course. SOMM CD will release and advertise the recording worldwide. Members of the Triratna Buddhist Order will see news of the release in various Triratna outlets together with details of streaming platforms. Warmest wishes, David/Akashadeva

      November 2023 - Theo Magongoma has just won the prestigious 2023 Elizabeth Greenfield Award. This comes on top of several successful auditions he did recently, for major roles next year, in both Italian and German opera houses. Held annually, this award honours a trail-blazing Black singer by recognising an outstanding present-day Black singer in the early stages of their international professional operatic career.
