(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.”

UPDATE : by popular demand, here’s the link to download the Sheet Music only (with thanks to Linda for the updated link!)
(correct apostrophe placement provided by Martha from Toas MN!)
Where can I get the vocal and instrumental sheet music for this? I want a women’s group I’m in to sing it.
You can download the sheet Music here: http://vibedeck.com/samuelsim/home-fires-main-theme-sheet-music-only
Heather, is there another location or way available for download of the sheet music? Nothing happens when I click on the link for download.
I absolutely tear up every single time I hear this.
Strange – Just worked for me……trey this http://vibedeck.com/samuelsim/home-fires-main-theme-sheet-music-only
Hmmm……yes I see what you mean. You can contact Samuel on his website here http://samuelsim.com/contacts.php
I’ll try writing to him and ask. Let me know if he gives you another link.
Samuel wrote back – it’s all fixed now so please use the same link.
Thank you Heather & Mr. Sim!! I will contact our music teacher straight away!!
I love that music I’m hoping it will be released soon.
I believe a CD is in the production line!
Wonderful news – I was hooked the minute I first heard it.
It’s very reminiscent of a (one off, I believe) CD I have, by an all female group of singers called ‘Damsel Jam’, which is totally amazing.
Hi, do you know if I can get the sheet music for the full version of this? It’s called Siren, it’s so beautiful our choir would love to sing it.
did you see the final comment at the bottom of this post – “UPDATE : by popular demand, here’s the link to download the Sheet Music only.” It links to http://vibedeck.com/samuelsim/home-fires-main-theme-sheet-music-only where you can buy the sheet music. Happy singing!
Hi, the link is only for the actual theme – the first 1:30 of the song “Siren” from the CD. I’ve absolutely loved singing it (on my own at the moment, but will hopefully be meeting with some friends to sing with all 4 parts soon – excited!), but it would be great to be able to sing through the full song as the middle section is amazing as well! Do you know if there are plans for the score for the full song to be released any time?
I’m afraid you’ll have to contact the composer direct for that – he is the only person who knows. http://samuelsim.com/contacts.php
Please do update us all if you have any luck!
I know it’s been a few years since you posted this. I am searching for the sheet music for “Siren,” the theme from Home Fires, and it appears that the links you posted are no longer active. Could you point me in the right direction?
Sorry for the delay in replying. I can only suggest you contact Samuel via his website and ask if you can buy the sheet music direct from him. It was available for a time but I can’t find the links now. Do let me know if you have any luck!
