Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s music has been described as “like a declaration of faith in the eternal verities of composition” (The Times), with “a voice overflowing not only with ideas, but also with the discipline and artistry necessary to harness them” (The Scotsman). Now published by Chester Music, she has been commissioned by BBC Proms, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Spitalfields Festival, and recently premiered a piano concerto. This is her fourth album for Champs Hill Records.

Performers include Nicky Spence and Sholto Kynoch, Sophie Daneman and Mark Stone (who get a special mention for playing egg shakers in The Thought Machine with texts by Kate Wakeling). Scenes from Autistic Bedtimes is a result of Cheryl’s time as a Cultural Fellow in Opera Related Arts.
