The setting of Rupert Brooke’s 1915 poem, The Soldier, was commissioned by Alex Patterson as part of the celebrations surrounding the Nottingham Cathedral Music Festival in June 2018 during Amy's time as Composer-in-Residence. The event marked 100 years since the end of World War One and the beginning of female suffrage in England with the passing of the Representation of the People Act. A recording was later made by Exultate Singers, conducted by David Ogden.
