Musician and composer Alexander Douglas has created a new piece of music inspired by the history and architecture of Longwood (Lang Wudu in Old English).
Alexander believes that "where words fail, music speaks" and inspired by the fascinating story of the unemployed workers who built Nab End Tower in Longwood for pleasure he has pushed usual boundaries to create a rare composition for a saxophone quartet.
At the Meet the Artist event in September 2015, guests were treated to afternoon tea at the quirky Edge Accommodation and had the opportunity to hear more about the creative process and how the Lang Wudu piece was composed. Lang Wudu was performed at St Marks Chuch in Longwood by the Hillary Step Quartet.
