Steve Martland pleased with performance of new songs

During the Minimal Extreme Festival in Glasgow last weekend Ars Nova sang three concerts and one of the main events was the performance of four new songs Sea Songs by Steve Martland commissioned jointly by Ars Nova and the festival. The songs was world premiered in Denmark in February and this was the first performance attended by the composer. He was very happy with the result and afterwards wrote: "It was very special for me to hear that performance and an experience that I won't forget."
