An international debut. Two major creative talents from within our alumnae, composer Nicola LeFanu and poet Wendy Cope, have come together to create this piece for the 125 Anniversary of St Hilda's College, University of Oxford.

Nicola LeFanu has composed over a hundred works which have been widely played, broadcast and recorded; her music is published by Novello and by Edition Peters. She has been commissioned by the BBC, by festivals in UK and beyond, and by leading orchestras, ensembles and soloists.

Wendy Cope's poetry collections include Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis (1986), Serious Concerns (1992) and If I Don't Know (2001), and Two Cures for Love (2008), a selection of previous poems with notes, together with new poems. Her latest collection is Family Values (2011). Wendy Cope is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. She was awarded an OBE in 2010.
