Hilary conducts the BBC Singers performing The Pankhurst Anthem

With music by Lucy Pankhurst and words by Helen Pankhurst, The Pankhurst Anthem marks the 2018 centenary of women’s suffrage in the United Kingdom.

BBC Radio 3 is inviting choirs around the country to learn and perform this brand new choral work in 2018. You can use this recording by the BBC Singers (conducted by Hilary Campbell) to learn your part. There are also alternative arrangements for women’s voices (SSAA) and melody/chords available to download from the BBC Radio 3 website.
