Conservation! image
SATB choir with accompanmiment of piano or orchestra.

Conservation! is an adaptation of the "show-stopper" from my children’s opera, Nessie. Set on the banks of Scotland’s Loch Ness, the opera is the story of the conflicting aspirations of naturalists and property-developers, with the mysterious Loch Ness monster, Nessie, caught between the opposing factions. In the opera, the song is an uplifting entreatment by the naturalists to the property-developers, to turn their land - on the banks of the loch - into a wildlife park, rather than a theme park. The song captivates the property-developers and eventually inspires them to create "The Loch Ness Wildlife Park".
In this arrangement, the words relating directly to Loch Ness have been re-written, particularly in the short middle section, which reflects the dire warnings of climate change. The outer sections are up-beat and largely unchanged, but the messages throughout are even more relevant today, thirty years after the original version. Peter Lawson
