DoPaF Treatment A4

 

This cycle of songs has grown organically over the past decade. Five were written for the short film Under an English Heaven, the first telling of the Maxwell Fyfe journey. Others were added for The Law is a Living Thing, our celebration of natural law during the 2015 anniversary of Magna Carta. More still were grazed as we explored Maxwell Fyfe's historical genes for this family telling. And the first song was added last, as we finally found Ne dis pas: Toujours, a song lyric quoted by Maxwell Fyfe in a speech given in Brussels just before Christmas 1946. Sue Casson has brilliantly written, adapted and weaved these songs into a beautiful whole.
