The Humber Bridge – SSA(A)


Inspired by the awesome sight of this magnificent bridge at sunrise, this is a song about engineering success, despite the doubters. The Humber Bridge, is a dramatic suspension road bridge across the Humber Estuary, from Hessle to Barton. When built it had the longest span in the world at 1.41km, and it still has the longest suspended central span in Britain. Musically this piece is fairly straightforward -but true to the subject matter, the tune is majestic in feel.
