BBC Music Magazine wrote about Owen Morgan Roberts’s project entitled Now the Hero. One he has took over from the late Oscar-nominated film composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. As Theatre of Voices, Owen had worked with Jóhann increasingly over the past few years. The project was an immersive theatrical experience, which featured a requiem written by Roberts and Jóhannsson. It took place in the city of Swansea in 2018.

We were going to record the music in April, and we have enjoying looking at and preparing the score that we received.

For now, we have to postpone the recording of the work for 8 voices, organ and electronics in our favorite recording venue: Garnison Church in Copenhagen where all will be conducted by Paul Hillier ... soon !

Nawr Yr Arwr/Now The Hero is commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary.
