'Let me write the songs of the people and I care not who makes their laws.' 
Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun
(a favourite quotation of David Maxwell Fyfe) 

The ‘songs of the people’ conjure for us the rights and freedoms of all under the protection of the Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms in Europe.

We perform our words and songs to confirm

and celebrate the rebirth and evolution

of human rights during that 75 years.

This website, formerly, will be launched in the spring as For now it remains our social media hub. See below. 

75 years on, members of the family of David Maxwell Fyfe tell the story of his journey from Nuremberg to Strasbourg to become an artisan of the ECHR

The Loud Minority

We believe in human rights, democracy and the rule of law. But we believe that those who have been making our laws, and who are still legislating, have let us down.


The highest court in the land has told the government, having studied the evidence, that it is not safe for migrants to be dispatched to Rwanda.The government's response is to legislate that Rwanda is safer, rather than making it so.


So we care not who makes our laws...


Although the Bill has now been passed, in the lead up to the 75th anniversary of ECHR we will  continue to voice our protest in song with performances of our song cycle Dreams of Peace & Freedom.

Magna Carta Progress 7

We launched our Magna Carta Progress in June 2022, to educate, celebrate and protect that great charter of rights and freedoms. It is now 18 months until the 75th anniversary of the signing of the ECHR and we are presently organising performances.


As we do, the latest stage of our Progress invites you to show your support by listening or singing along with our 3 song playlist at 12.15 each Saturday. Find out more at the buttons below.
