The London Shakespeare Workout (LSW) proudly presents

A FOURTH TIM WILLIAMS AWARDS (TWA4)
2011 MUSICAL SAMPLING

(The Tim Williams Awards, honouring the memory of the London Shakespeare Workout's late Musical Director, seeks to celebrate the art of
theatrical song composition, especially that to lyrics drawn from /inspired by established sources not originally intended to be sung

Please click on each title to hear the TWA4 song sampled.  Each song [recorded live for a Musical Talk podcast] has an especially
created video attached.  Additionally, each song is introduced as it was in performance with its title, composer, lyricist, originating 
performer(s)/interpreter(s), dramatic scenario & suggested musical style.  The latter two items are exactly as they were when originally
presented to the relevant participating TWA4 composer.  Brief notations of the West End credits of the participating performers can
be found by clicking on the original notice here and scrolling down.  Therein is also available a full compliment of composer biographies.)
