for SATB (with divisions) and viola obbligato Beach is taken from the song cycle 'Songs for Seven Storeys', which Bob Chilcott wrote to celebrate the opening of the New Evelina Children's Hospital. Combining a nostalgic melody with a haunting viola obbligato, this introspective song beautifully captures the memory of the seaside.
