Take Time is a piece designed to bring together musicians of all ages, abilities and experience, from near-beginners to professional players.  It was commissioned by the London Mozart Players and Croydon Music and Arts.  Take Time is dedicated to John Stephens, in thanks for his friendship and encouragement.

Anna’s lyrics for Take Time were inspired by the contemporary climate change crisis and its urgent call for change.
