At Cutty Sark, Greenwich, SE10 9HT
Friday, 27 March 2020
Doors open at 7.30pm, Concert starts at 8:00pm
The Fourth Choir brings a concert of stunning choral music on the theme of Voyages to the oh-so-appropriate venue of the Cutty Sark.
These choral Voyages will include that of the kings of Tarshish and Arabia, as portrayed in Reges Tharsis by John Shepherd, and the spiritual journey of Happy, oh Happy He by John Wilbye, both overlooked geniuses of the English Renaissance. Eric Whitacre’s thrilling Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine will be contrasted with sumptuous choral arrangements of Gaelic and Norwegian folksongs, plus the American classic Shenandoah which was sung by sailors on clipper ships like the Cutty Sark and thus became known throughout the world. Our musical voyage will be brought safely back to harbour by the heart-breakingly beautiful The Road Home, composed by Grammy-winner Stephen Paulus. All aboard!
Trilo - Songs by fishermen's wives to returning fisherman (The Fourth Choir 2015)
The concert will take place under the hull of the celebrated historic sailing ship, surrounded by wooden figureheads that adorned ships from over 3 centuries.
