The Montgomery Freedom Flame project is an initiative in the spirit of international camaraderie and cooperation. Originally lit in Portsmouth in 1948, the torch was carried to France and the Netherlands, both occupied nations during World War II, where it has been kept ever since, to represent justice and liberation. Now the Freedom Flame has been brought back to the UK and is now installed in Princes Quay in Hull. 2015 was the 70th anniversary of the end of the war and was marked in Hull by a series of celebrations in the name of freedom, culminating in a major event on 8th May, the 70th anniversary date.
Helen was commissioned to write a piece of music especially for this event. Her song ‘Freedom Flame’ was sung by the big Hull Freedom Chorus mass choir on 8th May.
