Shout Out Northumberland!

(and other anthems)

Stand up, Shout out Northumberland!  is the latest of four or five anthem-like compositions Cheryl’s been commissioned to compose for schools or collections thereof. This latest was for the 2012 Northumberland Schools Games, and involved her visiting six different school across Northumberland gathering ideas for lyrics, sentiments and musical styles from the youngsters in the schools, and then providing an anthem, the chorus of which was for everyone and the verses of which were for the different regional “teams” to perform. The result is a folk/rap fusion with a proud and confident twist, as requested. You can see and hear the learning video here: Previous anthems include “Our Home Northumberland”, “Our School is like the Taj Mahal” and “St. John Vianney’s School Song”
