Verity Standen is an award-winning artist, composer and choir leader, whose unique work with voices has surprised and enchanted audiences around the UK and internationally. Her newest work, REFRAIN, is a contemporary reflection on conscience and sacrifice in the light of drastic, heart-wrenching conflict. Presented by Situations, Refrain explores the stories of sixteen conscientious objectors, who were detained 100 years ago in the 19th century cell block of Richmond Castle.
