Featuring performances of two of his works, the first for string, organ and chorus - "To Our Fathers In Distress" - featuring The Ulster Orchestra and The Ulster Consort, conducted by Matthew Owens, and the broadcast premiere of a newly commissioned work "As The Sun Brightens, The Shadows Deepen" inspired by spoken words by his father, The Ulster Orchestra are under the baton of David Brophy."
