I have so much to thank music for. Not just the obvious things like appreciating its power to relax me, change my mood and to conjure up life memories etc. Those things are important and powerful of course, and one should never underestimate the power of music, but for me, it was so much more.
This week we are honoured to present an interview with Colin Mawby. He has worked with the London Mozart Players, the Wren Orchestra, Pro Cantione Antiqua, the Belgian Radio Choir and the BBC Singers and was also Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral, London (not to mention the most famous person that's ever worked at KM!)

Following on from Garth's visit to the KM office last week, we decided an interview for our Blog was a must! Below he discusses his latest album 'Justice like a river', working with Cliff Richard, singing in Spanish and much more!
