“As we retreat into our winter burrows, we hear the echoes of distant carols sung behind thick flint walls, fog coated familiar tunes weave through branches across the churchyard.
In the darkest days the voices of the past visit, in the lightest they encourage us to make new rituals. The traditions of wintertide and solstice intertwine, as we take the songs without oppression, the melodies without restriction and create New Christmas Rituals.“
Laura has co-composed with Chris Hollis, the score to the NEW Amazon Audible Original The Woman in Black – Audio Book. They created an original 3D score together and the story is performed by the incredible Paapa Essiedu.
