(13.5.17 – Updated Sheet Music Link!)
This morning Clare Balding joined the many people who have contacted me, pleading live on Radio 2 for the theme music from the ITV Drama Home Fires to be released commercially. Well obviously she didn’t contact me herself…..sigh…..
Lots of people would like to get their hands on a copy of the sheet music too!
Here’s what she said:
Such is its popularity, that by today, 89 people have shared the link I posted on Facebook of the audio file from composer Samuel Sim’s Soundcloud profile. Nearly 4000 people have been reached – with no promotion apart from the original share at all!
My Partner’s sister (a very accomplished musician herself) was the first person to email me:
“Just been listening to the theme from Home Fires on Soundcloud, and I saw you were on it!! Great stuff Heather! Is the sheet music available yet? One of my choir is hoping we can learn it…”
On facebook people started asking me for the sheet music and I wrote to Samuel to ask him if it would be available in that format. He replied ”
“I’ve had an extremely positive reaction to the Home Fires music, so thank you once again for your beautiful singing! Hopefully I’ll be able to release the sheet music at some point, but I have to get approval from the several publishers that seem to be taking an increasing interest in it!I’ll keep you posted.”
