Gloucestershire composer Penny Squire, music with film: A New Way

A New Way, a not-for-profit project, is 15 minutes of music with film. The music is an original composition performed by Distanza Quartet (formed when recording remotely for the BBC Philharmonic during lockdown) and the film features enterprises and activities in Stroud. It shows that, by following a green path and living sustainably, we can restore biodiversity and the health of the planet, and also improve our own lives, health and happiness. It’s on YouTube and the link is available on
