On 14 December 1918, women were permitted to stand for Parliament and were granted the vote for the first time in British history. As part of the centenary celebrations for this milestone and to raise awareness of persistent inequalities in society, Blossom Street presents repertoire by famous and lesser-known female composers, both living and those from previous generations, including Rebecca Clarke’s Ave Maria, Judith Weir's Holy Innocents, Kerry Andrew's Night-Time Songs and Elizabeth Poston's The Water of Tyne.

All of the performers on the Naxos disc This Day, recorded in 2018 and due to be released in January 2019, are women, showcasing works for upper voices.
