The prize for winning the prestigious Choir of the Year competition is to commission an original work by a composer of the choir's choice, sponsored by BBC Radio 3.   Les Sirènes is delighted to announce that the choir has selected to work with renowned composer Paul Mealor on this exciting new piece for female voices.  Paul was recently voted the UK's favourite living compser, having composed works for the Royal Wedding, the Military Wives Choir and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.  Andrew and the girls are honoured to be working with Paul, and feel his lyrical style will be a perfect fit for the choir.  The piece will be recorded and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 later in the year.
