Song facts

From The Paul McCartney Encyclopedia by Bill Harry:

A classical collaboration by Paul and Carl Davis. It is basically a distillation of the most melodic and song-like segments of Paul McCartney’s Liverpool Oratorio. The nine-minute piece incorporates ‘School’, ‘Save The Child’, ‘Let’s Have A Drink!’ ‘Spanish Dance’ and ‘Finale’ from the Oratorio. Its world premiere took place in December 1992 in Stoke, with a performance by the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Carl Davis. It then made its London debut in St John’s Church, Smith Street, SWI on 11 December and a third performance took place on 16 December 1993 at the Royal Northern College Of Music, Manchester where it was performed by the Northern Choral Orchestra.
