The Lenny Trusler Children's Foundation has enlisted some of the finest musicians and composers to present this new charity album raising funds for the Music Therapy Course at Helen House Children's Hospice, Oxford, United Kingdom. Inspired by Lewis Carroll's novel Alice in Wonderland it features a brand new text by Louis de Bernieres and a suite of music from renowned composers such as Sally Beamish, Roxanna Panufnik, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Carl Davis, Stephen Hough and Ilya Gringolts, all of whom donated their services to support the project. The Foundation also commissioned a series of short films which correspond to the music of each chapter, to be released online alongside the album.
